    I built an Osprey Std, back in 1996, used it quite a bit, as a quick, responsive backwater boat. Stable, beamy, and very usable in small surf, also. Loved the boat, but sold mine five years when the stable got to big. It has since served a family on lakes in Minnesota, some 17 more years. Not as fast as a Coho or a Murrelet, perhaps, but a very fun vessel. I introduced eight or ten buddies to backwater sea kayaking using it.
