  A thought

These boats were designed to a little of everything, which they do. But they don't do any one thing very well. So what you "may" get is a boat that can be a slug on flat water and a barge on whitewater. I am being very general here but that "can" be the case.

I assume that you are shopping new. If this is the case I would try to demo before you buy. I have done several demos and my favorite boat in the demo has always been one that didn't look the best on paper.

Another option, which is what I would suggest, is to buy two used boats. Spend some time on the water and see what you really enjoy. Then splurge for a new one that meets your needs exactly and sell your used ones for what you paid for them.
