in the carbon layup has graced my modest canoe fleet for about a year now. It has been on numerous multi day Adirondack trips and is an absolute joy. Remarkable directional stability for a tiny canoe. My seat is padded up about 4 inches and I paddle with a single blade bent shaft. Crossing Raquette Lake with 25+ mph winds and 2-3 breaking whitecaps was remarkably non threatening as the canoe bobbed like a cork.(I'm a lightweight at 150 Lbs. with about 45 in gear). It's 13 lb. weight made single portaging painless. Other than being somewhat slow, it is still a 12 foot boat, Pete's new design is one worth trying.
