Hornbeck vs Hemlock Nessmuk?


I am trying to decide between a Hornbeck Lost Pond and a Hemlock Nessbuk. Similar enough in size and weight, some other differences this layman recognizes is the Hemlock uses a gel coat; they also build floatation into the ends of the canoe whereas Hornbeck relies on his seat design.

I know paddling is important and will try doing that in the coming weeks.

I’ve posted somewhat verbose reviews of both in the product review section; my Hemlock review has some comparisons to the Hornbeck. I won’t repeat here.

Since you are planning to test-paddle both, I’d be curious to hear your opinions.
