This is a mid depth, 17#, low-profile boat, which I have paddled for 2 yrs. Initial stability is very tender, 2ndary stability much better. Fast, especially to windward, with feathered fiber paddle. Absolutely great on the trail - simply shoulder it, a yoke would be unnecessary weight. The carbon fiber outer layer, is very scratch / damage prone compared to a poly boat - treat it gently! Stock seating could be designed more comfortably.

All-in-all, I like the boat and expect to paddle it for many yrs. If you're a packer - this is your boat.
