solo or tandem?

Canoes that can be used for "everything" generally excel at nothing.
For tandem canoes I guess my Kevlar Mad River Explorer is as good a choice as any. It isn't fast or particularly nimble but it is tolerable, will carry a prodigious load, and is not too egregious to carry.
I agree with Turtle that the Swift Osprey is a quite outstanding compromise boat that can be used for flat water, rivers, and canoe camping.
