  Mad River Northwoods?

I recently picked up a fiberglass Mad River Northwoods. I haven't found to much about the canoe on the web, but am excited about its potential as a competitive ACA canoe sailing hull. It will have to serve as a family station wagon for a while before being converted to another "solo toy"

I would be interested in hearing any historical tidbits, design points, or experiences with this design. Thanks, Woody

That thread here and the madriver catalog are about all I could find. It will be a month or so before I can take the Northwoods out so I'm a bit curious about the the handling and such.
