Complained about every aspect of this canoe the whole first day. As responsive as a raft with its upward buckling bottom. Seats that caused serious rawness in the first 4 hours of paddling. A yoke that was not comfortable. The only positive was that the Royalex Lite seemed to take some use well.
To get any sort of glide out of this canoe you must bring along your saw and cut a couple of 3 inch logs to length so that they support the bottom of the canoe to keep its shape.
Definitely a must avoid canoe for the next serious 4 day trip in the back country.
