Maybe a custom run for one of the outfitters or rental outfitters?

I think they are both good boats. I have used the hyside commercially but have used the NRS privately. Personally, I got a deal on an NRS so that is what I bought. I then, glued on more D big deal. I bought the 16 footer but wish I had the foresight to buy the 18footer. Unless you are talking about full blown commercial usage it won't make a difference. One thing I noticed about my friend's 18 foot sotar is that it is light to carry around while loading the trailer. As to stiffness, I don't know, I never rowed or paddled one in big water.

Well, I got a hyside. Went back and forth too many times. There was one twist to my decision is that I went with the 16 foot xt instead of the 18er. Since I co own a snout, I thought it best to go 16. Pretty excited. I'm getting the frame from down river. Now onto the permits......if I get skunked again I'll do westwater 20 times and paddle lakes!

Thank you all for the advice,
