I agree with the previous review, this sucker is not light. At 80lbs empty it's easy for two people to portage, but a task for one. The ram xcell material is rigid however it scratches easily when beaching the canoe. With no keel (flat bottom) it turns very well but tracks with a little effort. Not a big deal, my wife and I had little problems, but you will need extra co-ordination. Best things about this canoe are the price..$430 at Academy, and the 800lb capacity. I would only buy the DLX model though as it has wooden seats and yoke. The plastic ones in the standard model look as if they would break very easy.
