PROS: Price, Quality, Secondary Stability, Tracking, Durability
CONS: Seats, Leg Room (BOW)
I am new to the canoing world and was lured to this canoe based on reviews I read on this site and others. The price was also a determining factor and one of the reasons I didn't list weight as a con (you get what you pay for). Being a beginner, I expected to go through a learning curve, but the canoe tracked and paddled very well from the beginning. The biggest problem I have seen is the comfort of the seats. With the seat back installed, I can't sit back far enough on the stern seat to be comfortable and I constantly feel as though I'm going to slide out of the seat.
Overall I am very pleased with the purchase and given the same cost constraints, would make the same choice.
