I've had an ultralight Odyssey for several years now. Its huge flared bow keeps everyone dry in big water. The Odyssey is so fast and tracks so well its substantial freeboard has never caused problems with steerage or making way even in a fresh breeze. The canoe turns, not quite on a dime, with a bit of a lean. We have found it to be a great family tripping boat. It has safely and easily carried our family of four (kids 7 and 5) plus gear for a week in the BWCAW. At less than fifty pounds it is a breeze to portage.
