  The Pintail has two quirks
  Posted by: BNystrom on Jan-08-13 7:13 AM (EST)
 

Not only does it not track strongly, it tends to hunt around like a bird dog. The standard joke is that Pintail paddlers actually paddle twice as far on any given length trip. The skeg neutralizes that behavior for the most part. On the plus side, it is extremely maneuverable.

It hits a wall at around 4 knots. Trying to go any faster is futile. Trying to keep up with people in faster boats can be exhausting.
