Yes I believe it is quite a bit more comfy.

I have paddled most of the boats mentioned in this thread. When I first was learning I tried the RPM and absolutely hated it. I switched to Fun and never really looked back. I have also paddled an EZG and it is also a great boat that actually paddles very similar to a Fun (the older generation Funs anyway). As was mentioned by someone else, a planing hull river runner like a mamba or burn would also be a good choice.

You should definitely be able to find a used Fun for $400. The EZG is a fine boat too, and you should be able to find some cheap since they are so old.

I miss my Big EZ. I used to do all kinds of fun stuff in it.

But it put my legs to sleep and I'm 10 years older now. *sigh*
