I owned one of these for years and I miss it. A very versatile canoe. I don't recall it being particularly fast on flat water, but it does just about everything else. I used it for fishing, cruising, camping, and of course, duck hunting. I would fit my wife and myself, a large cooler, sleeping bags, tent, packs, and fishing tackle in it. It handles class I rapids just fine and even had no problem with class II. I've broken ice with it in January and the hull held up quite well. I built and outrigger for an electric motor for heading up stream with no problems. Also rigged it with an anchor outrigger off the back. If I recall correctly it is rated for at least 1,100 lbs of gear. To manage this payload and stability the boat has a little wider beam than most sixteen footers. Also, if I remember, the weight is 72 lbs. not a featherweight, but I could manage to get it on and off the roof of my truck by myself and I am not a big guy. I think it had a very slight rocker and a very shallow V bottom. If I could find one of these I probably would buy it again.

Have paddled rivers and lakes with 1999 Duck Hunter in Royalex for years . My experience is that it has handled well. Tracks well and is stable. I use for some recreational paddling , but primarily for Fishing/hunting . Has seen some rocky faster water and has shown to be tough and ok to manuver . Exposed to Michigan weather 24 / 7 seems pretty unaffected , Though some UV fade. Need to keep hardware tightened regularly . Web seating going strong. Had my teen son on bow with us paddling with some speed... two guys in a fishing boat came up to us and said that they didn't think a canoe could go that fast LOL i know that there are better paddlers and faster canoes, but this has been the best one I have ever paddled. It seems to be a versatile craft.
