I was one of those people who loved the embudo, I just thought it was a tad too big for me. I wanted a 8/10'ths scale embudo, the creeker most definately is not that. The creeker was good don't get me wrong, it's one characteristic that I didn't like is that it tracks too well. Sometimes when you get some speed up and want to change directions, well it won't. Other than that it has performed admirably for me this season. For example, it has turned out to be a great Gore boat. I've decided I'm holding off on replacing my creeker 'till spring and getting a season pass instead!
