For an experienced paddler, particularly those accustomed to marathon canoes, the stability of the Whitewater 2 will feel solid. For new comers, other options like the Tripper will provide more confidence. It is a compromise one between a little more speed with the 33 inch beam, versus a little more stability on the Tripper's 35 inches.
I should note that our model is cut 1 inch lower in the bow, centre and stern. It was calm today, so the hope is that it will be less effected by any cross wind.

The craftsmanship on the canoe was good; there was 1 spot on the bow where the resin wasn't 100% complete just need to add a small coat for a touch up. I can handle the canoe by myself very easily just a bit long to balance when the ground is not very smooth. i have no problem taking it on and off the roof rack on my truck by myself.
Only thing i would change on the canoe would be a keel to keep it tracking straight in a bit of a cross wind. We have a race coming up next weekend down the Churchill River and hoping the long waterline of the canoe will help us get a little more speed compared to the shorter 17'ers.
