As stated by previous reviewer, weather cocks a bit, (OK with rudder) soft pedals, and back lacks support. Haddles well in moving water like rougher bays, but we found it work to paddle in calmer water.
Probably a little wider and deeper than I would have liked. Had intended to buy the Ellesmere, but found it sluggish and hard to easily determine if skeg was up or down wwith rope system. Perhaps Ellesmere's skeg maintains itself better than metal.
