Advice on Blackhawk Shadow 14'5" Kevlar

I’m looking for a solo boat for small lakes and rivers. 6’3 and 225lbs. Skilled paddler. Who has experience with this boat and what kind of advice can you give me?

That was my first solo canoe. It’s a sweet, versatile boat that should be great for small lakes and rivers. It will easily hold your weight; I took my wife for a ride in mine occasionally. I’m a kneeler and for me the Shadow is very stable but it might feel tender to a sitting paddler since the older shallow vee design has less initial stability than newer designs. If you sit and it feels tippy you can lower the seat.
