I paddled several others in this category before buying (Dagger, Old Town, etc). The "America" is simply the best. I have had it for 4 years now. Simply the best for 1) Larger paddlers (I am 6'5", 220#) 2) Fishermen (stable and roomy) 3) Taking pet/small children along 4) Beginners (stable and easy access) 5) Weekend trips (Enough room for several nights of camping).
If you are looking for something between a rec boat and an expensive touring boat, the America fits the bill. If you want a great all purpose boat with a ROOMY COCKPIT, this is it!
