I took this boat down the Allagash River in 04' and it performed well for what we put it through. After a little modification (removed the center seat put in makeshift thwart) we ran chase rapids (moderate class II) with empty boat, the Penobscot oil-canned quit a bit. After loading the boat with about 1000lbs of gear, food, and beer and me, 200lbs and my partner of equal size the boat was a little tippy. We made a few adjustments with our load and we were good for the rest of the ride. The secondary stability was very helpful when things got rough, and I felt well in control of the boat. Speed was not an issue but I was hard pressed to keep up with a fully loaded XL Tripper, those things a machine when it has some weight in it. I think I'll try the 17'2" Tripper next year.
