An Old town Penobscot 16 roylex, an Old town disco 159 cross linked poly, a Wenonah ultralight Jensen 17,
A Diller 18'-6" carbon/kevlar susquehanna and several solos. If I had to get rid of all but one, I would keep the Jensen 17.
I love that boat. It has won my wife and I a bunch of trophies and plaques, and except for the class III, I take it in I-II rivers, (yes I have had to patch it a few times). It has been in big water on ten mile long lakes, through the Everglades and many swamps and rivers, and is part of the family.
The Susquehanna is faster. the Penobscot is better in WW, and the OT disco is industructable, but the Jensen is a do all boat in my estimation.
If we are talking ocean, none of the above can equal my QCC-700 Kayak
