     This boat was designed in the era before kayaks took over white water and crazy folks in open boats ruled the standing waves. This hull has a load capacity of 1100 lbs. with 6" of remaining hull above the waterline...that displacement volume translates to 133 gallons of water in your boat and your still afloat... which is the blessing and bane of this boat... it can take on so much water as to become very difficult to maneuver.

It is a practically indestructible yet very maneuverable boat when it's dry and handled properly, even as solo boat. Maximize your spray skirts and fill every available space with flotation to prevent that same space from filling with water.

     This is a great white water canoe. I have had mine since the mid 80s and have taken it down some great water. Very responsive when handled correctly.

     I found this canoe very durable, but extremely tippy in windy conditions or on big water. On a calm river it is fine, but surprisingly in open water with wind it left a lot to be desired. So unfortunately overall I would not recommend it.
