  I don't agree about the Malecite
  Posted by: ezwater on Apr-25-13 7:02 PM (EST)
 

handling two 200 pound paddlers plus camping gear. The Malecite is essentially a pocket tandem, and if one posits 100 pounds of gear to go with the two 200 pound paddlers, that's 500 pounds.

Our Bluewater Chippewa, half a foot longer and several inches deeper than the Malecite, and with a better hull design, is rated at 560 pounds.

No one in his right mind would take a Malecite into Quetico for a week, carrying two 200 pound paddlers.

On the other hand, if you believe Mad River's weight capacity ratings, you'll believe anything.
