I weigh in at 162# and around another 40-45# for gear.
I am familiar with the SRT. No doubt that would be my first choice, as I have done many river miles and a few boundary waters miles in mine when I had one. But that boat is gone and I'm not in a position to spend $3k on a boat. Hoping to keep the cost under $1300. Even a used SRT would be more than that.
Also I am looking for something more durable as it seems as careful as I try to be I always seem to end up with minor damage that I cringe over. The Tuffweave sounds like a tougher option? But I've never owned one so that may be a market ploy like the listed rocker on the wilderness?
It sounds like the Argosy is a worthy tool for river travel, what would it be like in the Boundary waters?
