This canoe is good at hauling loads, in a straight line, while maintaining stability and seaworthiness. I was disappointed in the combination of firm tracking and relatively low speed (for a hull of this type). Good for those who appreciate tracking over maneuverability, I suppose, but the Prospector 17'6" is both faster in speed and faster to turn.
The Wenonah Minnesota II is in a whole different league for speed and efficiency, and if you prefer performance to durability it is a better choice.
The Wilderness 18 is a decent canoe, but I prefer others which have either better speed, better maneuverability, or both.
