SW 17 H

The more I paddle my shearwater 17, the more I'm loving it. The last few days I've been paddling in the Hudson against the tide, current and wind. This boat cuts thru it all with minimal effort. I'm finding it takes waves/wake from all directions with great stability. Now that I have the knee braces glued in and the seat adjusted it's really comfortable, imparts confidence, and handles quite nicely.

I want to thank everyone in the Forum and at CLC for their help, guidance and handhoiding
