Basically the H3 is more of a creek boat than the H2. It has more overall volume and more blunted ends to reduce pinning potential. I paddled the H3 all season, and although I was a little skeptical when I swithced (from a Micro), I loved it. One thing that I was worried abot was the shape of the bow and stern. They are not as rounded as other creek boats, but I never had any problems more acute than had I had the more rounded ends of a micro or CFS. Its fast and resurfaces well, essentially it feels like a sporty creek boat. The H2 on the other hand has less volume and even less blunty bow and stern, definatly a boat better suited for down river action.
