I've been looking for a solo canoe to use for 2-4 day camping trips on the local rivers as well as day playing and fishing on the local impoundments. I've had great fun soloing my tandem but would like something more manageable to improve my river paddling skills. I am 5'8'' and 200 pounds, 15 pound dog, my pack weighed about 40# last time, I like to take a small cooler, so that would bring me close to the max weight for the Wildfire for camping, but not for day trips. I like to kneel when I solo with some occasional sitting for relief.
I was wondering if a Wildfire would be a good fit.
