  Depends on "decent"
  Posted by: Big_D on Jan-15-13 8:35 AM (EST)

Decent for one fellow is trash for another. I don't think there's any high performance square end canoes, but I'm real pleased with my Esquif Cargo. Smaller versions exist. I think it paddles and rows just fine. Now mine is very large, so it isn't going to respond to gentle strokes, but it is readily controlled and stays people side up with a minimum of effort. But if you're used to a Dagger whitewater solo canoe, you're going to hate it.

Anyway, look at the Esquif sport canoes. They perform better than the Coleman and Old Town squarebacks in my opinion. I've never used a Sportspal, so have no opinion on those.
