true. Which is why a true general purpose tripping canoe that meets all the need of every type of trip optimally does not exist. But, if you are tripping on class 2 and 3 rivers as the OP indicates a nice big hull made of royalex is a good choice unless, as you say, there are frequent long carries. Also, such a canoe will work on other types of trips - but it is a beast to portage. If you are young and strong should be ok.
