Souris and Wenonah

The Souris River canoes and Wenonah canoes seem to be two of the most popular. Here is my summary:
Souris - More stable, much easier to repair/refinish, tougher.
Wenonah - Much more sophisticated design, more efficient and faster.
Both are quite comfortable, and well made canoes. If buying a used souris, look for cracks along the chine. If buying a used wenonah, look for any breaks in the foam core.
