Recently received my Placid Shadow in the Ultra Lightweight construction. The hull finish inside and out is the best I've seen on a canoe. The boat is very fast with excellent glide, runs straight yet turns smoothly. Coming from a surf ski/OC-1 background I plan on replacing the foot pegs with a foot bar and foot board as I like paddling with my feet together, but this is personal taste. The above comments are based on using a 230 cm. kayak paddle. I run the "high" seat which is about 4" above the bottom of the hull, with no issues with stability. I am 6'2" and 190 lbs. I feel this is a great high-performance exercise boat.
