Don't judge a book by it's cover...
When I first saw a NuCanoe I thought that it was going to be an unbearable pig to paddle. I hopped in a 10' boat and was pleasantly shocked. No, it's not a touring boat but it does paddle better than most 12' boats that I've ever paddled. The 12'er is even better.
For fishing inland rivers, small lakes and ponds it's great! There's a gazillion ways to rig it and even accepts a motor if you choose to go that route. I would not take it out on open water or through surf.
With the fishing seat installed it is by far the most comfortable boat that I own to fish out of (and I have many canoes and kayaks).
Test paddle one. You might be suprised.
