After a lot of research, I decided on the Dirigo 120 for me, and the Blackwater 11.5 for my husband. The Dirigo wins on comfort and space, I love the cupholder, and the dog loves to ride with me, but there is a big difference in tracking and speed compared to the Blackwater. We are planning on doing a lot of paddling, so I am returning my Dirigo. If you want a nice stable cruiser with tons of comfort and room, the Dirigo is the one, no doubt.
