Valley Pintail?

Hi folks;

I am considering candidates for my second boat. One contender is VCP's Pintail. The only time to date that I test paddled it was during a small craft advisory on the Potomac River in MD. I thought it handled very well in the wind.

Of those of you who have spent considerable time in one, what do you think are the strengths and weaknesses of this boat? What do you like and dislike?

Thanks,

Mike Hamilton (not Captain Murray Hamilton ;))
