  My experience
  Posted by: rblturtle on Jan-03-13 11:24 AM (EST)
 

I had a Hornbeck for 2 years of tripping. A great boat,but I wanted to kneel. I bought a 15# Savage River Wee Lassie set up for kneeling. I carried me and my load(180#+35#) Ok and was built well,but stability was marginal. Now my "pack Boat" is my 25# Colden Flashfire. I am a little lighter than you and don't have "the need for speed" so... If you can tolerate or want to sit on the bottom a Flashfire sounds good. My Kestral(kneeling seat) is my fastesr boat. I refuse to sit on the bottom any more!
