  Wilderness
  Posted by: jefallon on Jan-20-13 9:52 PM (EST)
 

I have been paddling a Kev-Flex Wilderness, empty for day trips primarily and loaded for a few longer camping trips a year, for the past 4 years. I weigh about 215lbs. I don't think of the Wilderness as "hard tracking" when empty and haven't found it unmanageable in the wind. Having symmetrical rocker means neither the bow nor stern is "sticky" and correction is easier, in my opinion, than with a "skegged" stern.
