Johncanoe returning from first test ride

Johncanoe in water with builder aboard
Arriving back at the dock after a successful test ride. The boat is very docile with no bad habits. It accelerates quickly. It also tracks very well even with its flat bottom (no skegs or runners needed). It can be turned very quickly by leaning and digging in the paddle. In the event that there's insufficient room for turning, it backs up as well as it goes forward. There's plenty of freeboard at 220 pounds displacement and it is very roomy inside.
