I picked up a Solo Plus used for cheap and thought I would give it try. I already own a Wenonah Spirit II (tandem) and Prism (solo). Years ago I owned a Sundowner. All are great boats. My experience is the Solo Plus is not so great! It’s just too narrow to even comfortably use for day trips as a tandem. The stern seat is placed way back in an already very narrow canoe and my hips are pinched between the gunnels sitting in the seat. The bow seat has more room for the hips, but sacrifices leg room. In my other Wenonah tandems with the bow sliding seat, I would have to slide the seats all the way forward to replicate the seat position on the Solo Plus. I didn’t find having my knees bent up high above the gunnels very comfortable. Tandem, the canoe is just too twitchy and uncomfortable. Maybe if you and your paddle partner are very short and 100# each, this might be a better tandem canoe for you. I’ve paddled it solo a few more times and found it more functional and useable as a solo canoe, but not very fun or exciting to paddle. Compared to my Prism, the Solo Plus is a an over sized bloated log that pushes a lot of water and noticeably slower in the water and more effort to paddle. It just doesn’t have that fun sweet spot feeling to paddle as other dedicated solo canoes. Furthermore, it’s oversized shape becomes a real hassle to paddle in wind stronger than 15mph compared to my other solo canoe. My conclusion is that it’s virtually useless as a tandem canoe for average size paddlers and useable as a tuned down blah of a solo canoe. Otherwise just get a true dedicated solo canoe. I use to own a symmetrical Mad River Explorer that handled better at being both used tandem and solo. I would paddle it backwards solo and sit in the bow seat. Bottom line: the Solo Plus was designed to be used for many things, but handles subpar in all these things.
