I'm not familiar with the Keewaydin but my old Expedition Kevlar Osprey is IMO the best river tripper ever made.
I've paddled it on everything from Class II+,(III-) to lakes.
Hauls my 200 lbs plus 80 lbs of gear like nothing.
Dry and steady in big waves.
Eats flatwater miles like peanuts.
For big lake tripping I prefer my Bell Magic. Otherwise I take the Osprey.
But you should buy the Keewaydin so that you can tell us how that hull compares ;-)
