Purchased my Algonquin summer of 2020, have not done any long trips yet. Previous experience was with Canoes and Recreational Kayaks(which were very stable) I find the Algonquin to be much faster that what I have paddled in the past. It has reasonable storage with a 300lb capacity, which will come in handy this year when I intend to paddle the Rideau Canal. I found it to be a bit tippy when I started to use it, but I am learning how to distribute my weight now which makes a big difference. The owners and staff at Clearwater were very informative and helpful at getting me started with a good fit, plus since I purchase at their factory I was able to pick the colour scheme. The seat is ok but not exceptional (my back is not the greatest either) a little more but padding would be great. Also a descent size cup holder and possibly a built in water tight glove box would be a great selling feature/addon. Overall I love it and recommend this boat. I intend to get the skirt this year for my trek.

I have just recently purchased Clearwater's Algonquin. Overall I am quite happy with the kayak. Some of the things I like is the large opening and seating area. At 6'3" I have more then enough room to maneuver around inside the boat. What I don't care for is the seat. The lower seat pad to me is uncomfortable on long paddles. The seat back with blow up lumbar support doesn't make a difference for me. External storage areas offer alot of cargo and packs very well. Wish there was a small storage compartment inside the cockpit for a larger beverage bottle. The boat tracks very well and with the standard rudder, maneuvering this very fast boat very easily. As mentioned the Algonquin is a great boat for those looking for a lower end touring kayak.
