I bought mine well used from the original owner. This is a great boat for a kneeler j-stroking. It responds very well to correction, and is fairly quick. I often choose this canoe to pair with my buddies Magic, and there is no noticeable speed difference when we are both j-stroking. I consider this to be an under-rated solo canoe. It is one of my favorite hull designs from Wenonah, and I will not be selling this one.
