We recently bought a new Tripper 16.5 in Infused Tufglas with a striking blue colour for a fantastic price. Stu (the owner and manufacturer based in Acton, ON) was fantastic to deal with and has years of experience; he really showed pride in his work. We took it to Killarney Provincial Park and it proved right away to be the perfect fit for us. It was big enough to fit the two of us and our packs but it didn't feel like a big, bulky boat. There were even whitecaps in the lake we were on at first, but it seemed like we were gliding right through the waves. It tracked really well with its shallow v-hull but I felt comfortable maneuvering it where I wanted to with little effort. Portaging went well - it's not kevlar, but at 58lbs it was easily manageable. We have no complaints, but I gave it a 9 only because it seems like the bright blue colour made the scratches that much more noticeable. Maybe they'll fade over time... Very happy with our purchase and would highly recommend Silvercreek, and especially the Tripper 16.5.
