This was my first solo canoe and I loved it. Mine was fiberglass and 39 pounds...and the lay-up was a bit too weak and it deformed a bit under the pressure of straps. It didn't affect the boat's performance. This is a relatively high volume, super predictable solo. Just a pleasure to paddle...efficient at low to medium speeds like most Blackhawks. If you push it hard it will push back...due to the shallow V-design and also due to the volume of the Shadow 14. This boat is just dreamy on a quiet pond; the handling is superb...the boat has a great feel. The capacity was big enough that I could take my wife in this boat for short paddles...over 300 pounds total with no problem. Many other solos may be a bit hotter...but none are sweeter.

44 lbs in proprietary layup with ash gunnwales and can seat. A dream to explore quiet streams, estuaries and lakes. The more skilled the paddler's technique the more responsive the boat.
