  Second the Penobscot
  Posted by: jerryohare on Jan-04-11 3:51 PM (EST)

I owned one and it was a good tandem and an acceptable solo. I have also had a 15 foot Bob Special (made by Nova Craft) in Royalex. Better as a solo than the Penobscot but not as good as a tandem. Both were reasonable in weight. Basically any symetrical designed tandem will do as a solo also. Symetry enables you to paddle from the front seat facing rearward with minumal (or no ) ballast. A non-symetrical design can be soloed but you will need to weight the front to prevent the bow from skittering around in a breeze if you do not plan to kneel in the center or install a center seat.
