Reviewed by Paddler from Connecticut on Tuesday, March 15, 2016Canoe just arrived, packed very well. As noted it is a second, which in my case is a small dent, otherwise perfect shape. I would be writing this from the lake if it were warm enough! Great deal, highly recommend.
Reviewed by frankie from Stafford, VA on Monday, February 17, 2014It's a very nice canoe. It's too cold to use it as of yet, but we will as soon as the weather warms up. One thing I wanted to mention was the shipping of the canoe. It was loosely wrapped in bubble wrap, and therefore there were several scratches and dents in the canoe.
Reviewed by karl from thunder bay Canada on Friday, November 18, 2011I have tripped all over Ontario Canada with all kinds of canoes- whitewater to flatwater
This boat is tough and a great boat
its not the best at anything but good at everything
Its heavy with the crosslink polyethylene plastic compared to royalex but is way tougher. at 85 pounds you dont want to carry this too far by yourself - but it can be done - its just makes portaging a chore
a flat wide bottom boat with little rocker, but still can handle moderate whitewater. Lots of volume for tripping. stable

Verified Buyer Reviewed by wspier from Blue Springs, MO on Sunday, June 19, 2011We use the boat for lake use. If the water's choppy though you have to be careful. The boat's a little heavy, but doable. If it's anything, it's rugged. This boat will take a beating.
