Not only does it track well it is faster than my canoe. The seat not only has a comfortable bottom but the seat back is wonderful. I had back surgery last fall and was worried that the Trident would have to be set aside but, when I used it this spring, I was pleasantly surprised to find out just how comfortable it was even with a sore back.
While it is only a few pounds lighter than my canoe, its shorter length made it easier for me to handle and put on top of my Jeep or on my canoe trailer. When I wear my waders it becomes at least a three season boat if not one I can use year round including during our southern Missouri winters. Would I buy another? You bet!
While it does have excellent storage capacity, the center trunk is rather long and wide and leaves only tight leg room on either side. The pre-tapped holes and gear sets on the trunk lid are not user friendly, for example for receiving Scotti rod holders, etc., or for screwing in other accessories. Fully rigged, the boat weighs in well over 60#, which makes loading and unloading from the vehicle a challenge.
On the whole a fine boat, with a few design improvements it would be a great boat.
