most compromise boats that I've tried don't seem to do well anywhere. Because of my knees, I've shifted to SOT's. Surf ski's are a hoot, but they can be a handfull. A fishing type SOT is really comfortable and my old Manta Ray 14 was great in lower level whitewater. I also like to sail, so my Hobie Adventure Island sails really well. Now, it's a barge when pedaling or paddling, but it's fun as a sailboat. And, my inflatable, an Innove Safari, packs in and out well along with being a pretty good whitewater boat.
I like boats that do well in their particular environment.
