when we went into the water together for the first time, the 13 seemed very tender compared to the 10.5 and 12 I had before...after a while, it became lively and fun... now that I've learned to exit my 70 year old frame out of the boat more easily... well, what's not to like?

This is an update. Just came back from a 5-day paddle outing in and around St Regis Canoe area. The New Trick 13 performed so well I now have my touring kayak up for sale! This is the perfect boat for the flat waters of the Adirondacks. It did well in chop and wind, but you need to mindful of heading into the wind as it's light weight (22 lbs) makes the bow want to come off the wind unless you stay on top of your paddling. Very forgiving and a delight to pick up, throw on your shoulder and carry to the next pond or lake. Did a 12 mile "slog" on the Santa Clara flow in 90 degree weather, and finished the trip tired but not dead-tired. I see many fun years and miles ahead with this boat.

Just picked up my New Trick 13 after meeting with Peter Hornbeck, his wife Ann, their, 2 dogs, and crew Mike, Justin and Dan. These folks know their boats forward and backward, and it's taken me over 7 years to finally make up my mind that my 16' sea kayak is getting too damned heavy to lug around the great Adirondack waters, with all their carrys (portages to your Midwesterners). I tried a lot of their boats out on their pond and came away with a New Trick 13. At just over 24 inch beam and about 22 pounds it's a sweet solo canoe that can carry my 200 pounds and another 50-60 pounds EASY. Tracks well and paddles with little effort, especially using a super light carbon paddle. I can throw it on my shoulder and not have to be intimidated by the rocky, root-infested carry to some of the best flat water paddling in the world right here in the Adirondacks. Great boat, great builder, and great team of "old school" folks who build each of their boats with one customer at a time in mind.
