The Legend is a great hull design for multi purpose canoeing. Though it is not the best hull design against head or cross winds in open water it can handle it with proper stokes quite well. It is better designed for tripping White Water rivers. The best attribute of this legend of a canoe is its weight capacity vs it class 3-4 ability. Untouchable from that perspective. The only other hull design I like more is also a Dagger but rather the model Caper 14.4" stable, can handle about 1/2 the cargo capacity and handles White Water far better. Though not a good on open water on wind days.
NOTE:Any time one is paddling a canoe with appreciable rocker and no keel on open water windy or not complaints of paddling the craft are pilot error.
