  Hobie Mirage Adventure

I'm a long time canoer now interested, possibly, in a Hobie Mirage Adventure. I've pedalled a couple of Mirage Drive boats so am familiar with the system but am wondering specifically how the Adventure paddles compared with similar poly kayaks (16' long 27" wide). Thanks

But I have not paddled it, only pedaled. Sea Kayaker magazine gave it a glowing review several months ago and they said it paddles very well.

PS: I want one...BADLY!

assorted bottom holes for drive and scuppers, so will probable be somewhat slower than similar narrower SINK rec boat. Wife has the smaller "sport", (~50#) good stability, and enough speed to just peddle and keep up with easy cruising paddlers while her shoulder surgery heals. Wants her Blackhawk canoe back though - freestyler. R
