We have paddled the Trinidad for two years on day trips and 4 camping trips. With careful packing you could pack 4 days worth of gear. Very secure and predictable in rough water, though a bit slower than a fast single even with strong paddlers. Because the rear paddler is so far back, it maneuvers very well w/o the rudder, and there is little risk for paddles clanking. Should the rudder jam, the rear paddler can actually reach it from his cockpit, a good safety feature. Central hatch with bulkheads is a great feature,and seats ar very comfortable with good knee bracing. To make this boat ideal, it would need 2 more feet of waterline length to utlize the power of 2 paddlers, 15- 20 lbs lighter weight, and the maybe 3" narrowere width. VG quality.
