If I were on a lake with a Wenonah Cascade, I would shoot myself. Five hundred miles on the Yukon was bad enough but the current was 12 kph which helped.
I do think bow flare helps.. My Wenonah Odyssey was designed for downriver racing to class 3 and has a deep flared bow. Its quite OK for Lake Superior too. Its been both places. Its a handful empty and not a solo boat at all.
There are quite a few other "best" boats out there, but "best" in one category often means "lacking " in another category.
