I currently have an old town pack, but at 12 feet, it is too small for my use, which is fishing small lakes and rivers. The pack also seems slow to me.
I'd like to find a larger, faster canoe, maybe one that could serve as a light duty tandem as well.
I am 6'tall and weigh 300lbs.
I'd rather not have royalex and I prefer to use a kayak paddle.
There seem to be a number of boats that might fit my needs, and I was considering specifically the Wenonah prism, solo plus, or escapade, but I'm not in any way stuck on those boats.
Really, I want opinions about those boats, and any others that might fit my needs. In reading some of the discussions on this and other fora, I've seen some contradictory opinions, especially about the stability of these choices, so any first-hand anecdotes would be particularly appreciated.
