  I'm goin' with a madriver explorer....

ain't as flat bottomed as a tripper, a bit stiffer boat, more veed out. Less capacity, but a bit more turny.Never portaged one but can't imagine it sucks any worse than a tripper. If you got a lot of gear the tripper wins out. Takes more skill to paddle the explorer but given a choice that's what I'd take out of those two boats. The trippers ends sheds big whitewater better but it just ain't as manuevable. I can't speak to the others on the list- never paddled them. Boats I didn't like as well for tripping included the blueholes, grummans, sea nymphs, discovery and penobscot.
