  Wow! Thanks for responses re Merlin 2

Thanks everyone for the responses! This is my first time to chat on paddling.net and I am amazed at the 3Q's of your responses: Quick, Quality, and Quantity! Thanks! I paddled a Royalex Wilderness and it didn't catch my fancy but not to say that a composite Wilderness wouldn't. Problem is I've lived most of my life in the Dallas area where you can test countless classy high price composites, but only if they are bicycles! I can only read about Swift Ospreys and Shearwaters, etc, etc. and drool. Especially helpful are comments from you guys that have owned boats I have owned alongside boats I haven't. My kevflex Rendezvous really does a combination of things quite well, but is just a tad heavy at 49lbs, hence the ongoing search by this life long addict. Question: I know what the term "sit and switch" means aka "hit and switch" and used to own a Beaver marathon tandem years ago. But what is the name of the one sided style? I seem to remember North American Touring Technique or Canadian or Freestyle used somewhat interchangeably and probably inaccurately by guys like me! Again, Thanks!
