Overall - The Acadia is an excellent boat for day trips in protected waters of bays, rivers and lakes. With the rear hatch and rudder, your assured of a decent combination of safety, tracking and speed (although will not match a touring boat). Its main advantage comes from its combination of use and size conveniences - At around 50lbs and 13 ft, it easily is put on top of the car, carried over rocks, and thrown over fences to access any water. And it won't take over the garage, apartment or basement.
