Canoe & Kayak Magazine Test
"...It's a simple and clean-looking craft. The black anodized
gunwale has virtually no outside lip, fasteners are either hidden
or color matched, and the composite end caps are perfectly fitted.
Under the end cap, a raised rib makes a most comfortable carrying
handle... The Sweetheart hull is quite rigid because of the
core construction... The core is carried via a wide rib to the
gunwale line along the side, so the entire boat is quite stiff...
If paddled in a kneeling position with a canoe paddle, the Sweetheart
will dance to any tune your paddle can play... When a paddler
is seated on the portable cane seat, it gives a stable, comfortable
ride using a double-bladed paddle... Sweetheart moves right
along and is really fun to turn. It spins quickly... What we
have here is a little canoe to get a sportsman on the water
in difficult-to-reach places. It's a real Sweetheart, all right:
cuddly to carry and stable... a Sweetheart of a deal..."
"A Note of Thanks! This is the start of the
fifth season for my Sweetheart. It has turned out to be
a real hit with me, my kids and friends, and is just the
right size/weight combination. Sweetheart is easy to transport
and works well for one or two people. New canoeists like
the stability, and experienced paddlers have used it in
light whitewater and found it quite sporty.
By the way, I've impressed people when they find me paddling
on lakes up to a mile hike-in.
This is the canoe I take when I can take only one. And
when more than one boat goes, the Sweetheart gets the
most use. Thanks for a real Sweetheart!"
