I wouldn't have ten solos.
Swift Heron-Hemlock Peregrine.( have both..one is kind of beat up and gaining weight from patching materials)
Bell Merlin II ( deceased, no need to replace it)
Curtis Nomad ( same kinda as Peregrine but a heavy layup for Florida. Peregine is carbon for portaging)
Loon Works Aria (daytripping)
Loon Works Nakoma (daytripping)The latter two are the wooden versions of WildFire and FlashFire
Mad River Monarch..one of the sea canoe ilk. For Lake Superior.
I don't feel the need to be further tempted by other good boats. though I would be tempted to buy a Yellowstone Solo for bump and bash rivers.
All of the ten I love. I can't get rid of any one to get the list of five. All do something really well that others don't do quite as well.
I have not paddled too many Wenonahs though I found the Vagabond boring, and most of the others as demo boats are dedicated sitting boats which I am not fond of yet(that is changing as I age). So not much experience with them. And they are hard to find in my area. For this maybe I ought to be grateful.
Even if I could come up with a favorite list its bound to change as I get older.
