Nice boat. Bought the Royalex version several years ago, when the kids were young. We have 3 boats, this is the ones the boys have always fought over. They are 18 and 16 now, and this is still their favorite boat. Its fast through the water, easy to maneuver, just a really nice tandem boat if you don't need too much capacity. A nice solo boat as well, still easy to control, and quite fast. My only warning would be that if you are planning to paddle tandem, and you are heavy, probably should find a bigger boat. My wife and I are paddle it comfortably (and we are about 400 pounds together), but any heavier and I think you would want a bigger boat. Otherwise, go for it... really neat boat Wenonah designed, it works well for lots of different kinds of paddling.
