Bought my Bayou 12 years ago. A great boat at a great price. It has been in the Atlantic, Pacific, lakes in Alberta, B.C., Glacier N.P.. I was paddling across New Fork Lakes, Wyoming in a big windstorm with 2 foot waves coming across the bow and the Bayou tracked steady right through it and got me through 5 miles of paddling hell.
I read it has been discontinued. Too bad.
I have a Dagger 10.5 and 11.5 and the Bayou is better than them both.
