I don't seem to have any trouble carrying gear for a camping trip. My Duluth pack sticks up above the gunwales some but that's about it.
Definitely consider lowering the seat in this boat. Mine is a 2000 model year, and after I dropped the seat a couple of inches there was a noticeable increase in comfort and performance.
The only thing I wish was different was the color choices. I would like to see them offer the boat in red. I got stuck with ivory (it was a demo so I had to take what they had--couldnt get a spruce one). The ivory is butt-ugly but not enough for me to dock a point from my review rating, LOL.
If I had to buy my first solo canoe all over again, I'd be looking for a Sandpiper.
Three cheers for Wenonah -- another great canoe to add to it's ranks!
