Very impressed by the speed, tracking, and maneuverability of this canoe. Used it on a 4 day fishing trip in the 1000 Islands, paddling from sunup to sundown every day and wished we could stay an extra day. It flies through the water, and I'm pretty sure someone could waterski behind it if you use a kayak paddle.
Used it for a father/daughter canoe camping trip - it paddles and tracks well when fully loaded too.
All in all, a great canoe and I highly recommend it. My only complaint is that the guy in the front always seems to catch more fish than the guy in the back. Hopefully this design flaw will be addressed in a future model!
The people running the company have years of experience constructing canoes and answered all questions I had. At 50 pounds, I could easily pick up and move the canoe myself. This canoe was very well constructed and as good as any of the well more known brands.
