I had a Curtis Vagabond for a few years. Decent speed, tracking and maneuverability.
I sold it a couple years ago to taller people with wider wingspans, because the widest part of the gunwales on mine was in front of the paddling position and it measured 28" outside edge to outside edge, which is noticeably wider than my other solos in front of the seat. The new owners really like it and it sure looks beautiful and sexy when I see them paddling it across the lake now and then.
I took my only freestyle lesson in that Vagabond and it didn’t work out too well.
I also had a Bell Merlin II when I sold the Vagabond. The Merlin II had narrower gunwales in front of the seat, and they were aluminum, which I prefer for lower maintenance.
I still paddle and very much enjoy my Curtis Lady Bug, it’s much better suited for someone my size - 5’6" and 165 lbs. It is a fabulous multi-purpose solo and I seem to cruise as fast in it as I do in my longer “faster” solos and it maneuvers much easier.
If this Vagabond is reasonably near and you’re anywhere near the right size for it, I encourage you to go check it out. They are nice canoes, just didn’t fit me as well as my other solos.
