buying canoe

I just finished for the second year in a row a 27 kilo mild whitewater race and finished midpack both times.I started this excursion after having cancer and now really enjoy even in 5 degree celcius weather with rain snow wind and cold water after swamping a couple of times. I would like to find a canoe that can turn,handle wind and be fairly dry and stable in class 1 or 2 water at a fair price. Thanks for any help and safe paddling.

solo or tandem?
Will you be paddling solo, or with a partner?

Old Town Penobscot
16 or 17



This will 99% of the time be used tandem, mostly on narrow rivers.
