A friend had me take delivery of a new QCC 700 yesterday, I'll be storing for him for a few weeks until he returns from Canada. While in my possession I am told to "take it to the lake and try it out". I've only paddled a QCC 500 just a little bit this summer, mostly during some rolling practice. I found it a tough boat to roll. The 700 looks like it might roll a little easier, being somewhat narrower, and more of a round hull shape. John is a marathon canoe racer for many years, and is now getting into kayaking, I can see the same hull shape in his new 700, as I do in his racing canoe's. I'll try and spend some time with it this weekend on Lake Waconia.
