This boat loves weight and is very fast. With two adults, two kids, and all gear for 3 days the boat was as fast or faster than a 17' Mad River Explorer with only one paddler vs. two in the Explorer--my daughter was still nursing and I ended up providing most of the motor power for a good chunk of the three days.
On the second day we had to head almost directly upwind with 2-3' waves. With just a little quartering of the waves the boat handled the conditions perfectly, and, with a skin coat it only weighs 45lbs. Easy to portage, even with a pack. After several years I still love it.
