If I were you I'd learn to read the water first. I met a paddler last year who did it in a Wenonah WIlderness. It did a wonderful job for him. It's a true solo canoe. I paddle a Clipper Sea 1 on the Mississippi. Best boat I've ever owned for big water wind and waves. I've also paddled the mississippi for a week in a Wenonah Prism. Very nice unless you get a big quartering tailwind. Then it's a lot of work to keep it from weathercocking. In any case you need to learn how to read the water in order to stay alive. One mistake on the Mississippi and you'll never get a second chance. Learn to read the water!!!!
