As you can tell, I'm a flat water guy. I'm not hitting heavy water with this boat. Just wanted something that I can take out solo for a couple of days and not worry about rapids. Advice was great. Couldn't get the draw stroke going on it, but info on paddles makes sense. Also, with the cold water I didn't want to test the Courier's heeling ability too much. Think I'll wait for warm weather to really get a feel for the secondary stability.

Yes, I did mean otter not beaver, although I have a long shaft beaver that I may try on her before I spring for a new paddle. Or if I get ambitious, I might build a paddle over the winter. Always wanted a T grip. And I agree, it's a good looking boat. The big capacity appealed to me. I'm setting it up primarily for solo, but also so I can switch it over quickly to a tandem for river day trips with my wife. Thanks again.
