Capella 169

I own a Capella 169 RM, and love it. However, I’m considering moving up to a Composite Capella 169. Does anyone have experience paddling both, and can speak about the differences in paddling?

Thanks for your opinions

Paddle the RM 166 a bit
and have paddle a 163, but not a 169. Heard today that P&H is discountinuing the 169 next year and replacing it with a 167. My understanding is the 169 was different from the rest of the family - more of a playboat - and the new hull will be more in line with others in the family. Guess we’ll have to wait and see.
