We demo'd one of these and really liked it. We're currently saving for one. We compared it to the Swift Temagami and overall preferred it. Compared to that boat it's faster and easier to handle.

I love this boat. I bought this boat in the spring and have made two trips with it, 3 nights and 5 nights plus many day trips this summer.

Boat performs as advertised. Goes fast and straight, holds tons of gear and has great secondary stability. Paddles well solo, which was a pleasant surprise. Hit some rough water in Algonquin this year and boat preformed admirably, little bit of splash for the front paddler but never caused any worries. Portages really well, seems lighter then the 52lbs it weights, maybe it's the yoke that does it. Mine is the regular Kevlar layup with a kneeling thwart.
