  Can't go wrong
  Posted by: Kelsey5 on Jan-03-13 3:27 AM (EST)

I have a Yellowstone, and paddle it frequently on fast moving rivers. It eats up class II water, and is easy to maneuver on the slow stretches. It doesn't track well on flat water (not really meant to) but I have done some pretty long lake trips in it and it's serviceable if you're not in a hurry. I put a kneeling thwart in mine to solo, it's asymmetrical, so turning it around isn't a good idea. Morningstar is a very similar design, and would probably be a little quicker against the current. Certainly a LOT lighter, but don't know how big an issue that is to you vs. the increase in cost for b/g.
