If you are doing mostly lakes, and big river, non-whitewater (except maybe class I or so) then an Emotion Glide is a great boat. I bought one early this summer, and it is a phenomenally stable boat, and light considering how big the boat is (~37 lbs). If you are looking for whitewater, this boat is def. not recommended. It's too big to manuever that quickly, but it is fun on big rivers. I've taken it on the Delaware River, near Milford, NJ. Good luck.
