"What canoe did you rent?"

I was just asked the following question:

"Hey, for your solo trip, what canoe did you rent? Like size and weight? I am wondering if I should rent a solo, or a 15-16 foot lightweight. I am leaning to the latter. Thanks."

I considered renting a larger canoe, but it can be difficulty to maneuver a tandem canoe solo and I wanted it to be lite. The best compromise of weight and stability was the Swift Shearwater Kevlar fusion and it weighs in at a slender 38 lbs!
