...and what type of water did you paddle in...and how did that/those canoe(s) do...? A good Royalex or expedition composite tandem hull is somewhat heavy on the portage end...but can come alive on the water...and is so stable what it comes to beaching up anywhere...but a stiff expedition kevlar, designed well is, indeed, terrific.
The Yellowstone continues to sell, although some of NovaCraft's and Wenonah's tandems look ok...add in a few of Esquif's Touring hulls...but pricey new.(http://www.esquif.com/2008/canot_en.php?id=14 ).
If heading for kevlar you might want to find the "expedition" tough kevlar cause two adults add a lot of weight for a light kevlar to take a hit and stay healthy...just my $.01 with years since my last stream tandem paddle. Have most always found kevlar tandem hulls leaning on the high performance end...usually feeling a bit twitchy for two to relax in...with something other than paddling performance/racing in mind.
*So Glenn....think they'd deliver to north central Maine..?..lol. Man you've got me wantin' something just reading that....but can't get out and throw a line anywhere...~5deg above right now.
