It is surprising to hear this boat is harder to turn than a Kestrel! My paddling buddy has a Kestrel and it is just as hard to turn as my Blackhawk Starship. I was hoping maybe the Covenant was a highly maneuverable boat.

I have watched the videos on the Placid website and the Rapid Fire seems to turn pretty quickly. So if the Vagabond/Kestrel/Rapidfire are basically the same boat, why is the Kestrel so hard to turn?

Thanks for the info.
