It weighs in at 39 lbs in the Performance construction (only construction offered) and it's got hatches and bulkheads.
The hull is nearly identical to my Epic Touring Cruiser 16, but the bow is more plumb on the V6.
My wife prefers the easy mount and dismount of the V6 vs the kayak cockpit of the Cruiser.
These boats are very stable, fast and efficient. My wife is a complete novice and hadn't paddled yet this year before test paddling the V6 today, but got right in it and took off with no problems. The V6 really hauls when I put a little effort into it. I was impressed with how effective the Trackmaster rudder was.
Sounds like the V8 is a good match for you.
The dealer I got my V6 from said that he is encouraging Epic to offer an option of hatches & bulkheads on the V8, as well.
