  Saranac 14
  Posted by: shiraz627 on Feb-05-14 2:59 PM (EST)

Before I ordered the Saranac 14(kevlar/skeg) I considered a Manitou 14 composite. What I did not like about the Manitou was that the Skeg cable was right in the middle of the rear compartment. I have run over rocks and reefs, sometimes you end up with a scratch in the gel coat but I have yet to repair the gel coat in 3 years. So I will say the boats are very durable and don't worry about scratches in the gel coat. You should have plenty of storage space fore and aft for a overnight trip. The Saranac has more usable storage space than the Manitou.
