I have one of these (Esquif Cargo):
There are smaller versions available as well with the Heron and Mallard.
I like it well and have been pleased with it under power. It is a complete dog to paddle, but I have added oars and found it to be far easier. I use a Mercury 2.5hp engine for going upstream, but have discovered that a spare prop and some spare shear pins are not optional, but necessary. It handles well under power once enough ballast is added to get a reasonable trim.
