I read the other reviews and just had a couple of comments to add. I have found that I use the rudder almost all the time to minimize the weather cocking which I find to be quite a problem. This may be because I generally paddle in wind and swell. Also, I usually have the boat relatively empty and am fairly light (125).
I find the boat does not edge as well as a hard-shell but makes up for it by being quite easy to maneuver with paddle strokes.
It is a very comfortable boat if you are tall. A great camping boat as there is lots of room for gear. Set-up seemed like a snap to me but then again, I used to own a folboat. :-)
