Once we put it into the water, we are also very impressed with it's performance. It is a surprisingly fast canoe that handles very nicely. My wife was also happy to note how easily it glides through the water without a load (it only draws around 3-4" with the two of us) and its ability to ride over wakes or decent sized swells. Besides being stable (I suspect it will be more stable with a load) it is also very responsive because of its size and design.
We both look forward to taking the Cygnus 16 out for numerous river and lake trips in Wisconsin and the Boundary Waters next summer.
This canoe is a joy to paddle!
