I paddle with a group of people who do slow rivers and creeks. Very casual trips - our oldest is 90! Many of us have the older style Dagger Zydeco, which is light weight, around 9'6" long and around 27 1/2 inches wide. The new Zydeco model is a bit shorter and much wider, so as a short person, I'd avoid that one. (I am 5'3"). With my boat, I have no problems with knuckle banging.
LLBean is now offering the same boat under the Manatee S name.
