I needed a canoe to take two anglers fishing for trout on flatwater in the Adirondacks. This boat is perfect. I almost put a score of 10 up but I didn't. Not sure why. I can't find any flaws in it. I paddle from the stern with a kayak paddle all day effortlessly trolling. No worries about clients trying to tip us over. Also, a great family camper canoe. My two toddlers and my wife can bring it all for extended trips with all the carrying capacity it has.
I really should rate it a 10. I've only used it one season. Maybe next year I'll up it to 10. I have some trips planned with it this summer, we'll see.
Highly recommended big tripper, stable and fast.
