with the later adjustments to the rendevous by wenonah has it made a difference in the canoes performance. i have it down between the mr freedom [solo], rendevous and supernova. the mr may be the best “all around” canoe for the river tripping and day paddling. but, i may have the chance to paddle the rendevous this spring if i can get the nearest shop to have the rep produce one to try out but this may be another thread. the mr feedom would be another 3 hour drive if the shop there has one. thanks.
