Sweet! If you decide you don't like it, let me know...I'd trade you a well-used Vagabond and cash for it!

That's a fine boat, we could get in a bidding war....?

Yeah, but you don't have a Vagabond with character to sweeten the deal.  We're talking about the one that Mitch wrapped a bit around a rock on Spring River, the one that's floated a thousand miles or so of creeks too shallow to float, the one that got dragged the whole half mile hike from the creek to the parking lot at Kingston Access on the Mineral Fork.  Heck, a person ought to be able to catch fish just from the spiritual aura surrounding that canoe :)

My new penobscot solo 15 pulled into the driveway about 4 o'clock Saturday. I think I'm going to be pretty happy with it.

Are you glad yet that you didn't settle for a lesser boat?  That's a dandy.

I really am. I paddled more than 20 miles several days in a row and I'm guessing you can't do that comfortably in a lot of boats. She tracks really well. It was a good choice but one I  would not have made without help from the forum members here.  I over packed for my trip and was heavy till the end. Rookie mistake I think. She handled the load very well.
