Summary

Stable, easy to assemble, durable, easy to paddle.

Pros

  • I can store it in my closet.
  • I can put it in the car, and it can have a sail so I don't have to paddle.
  • It moves easily to where I want to go.
  • Solid, we have not succeeded in tipping it.
  • Lots of gear room

Cons

  • You have to spend at least 20 min assembling.
  • For short people I'm 4'10", the seat is uncomfortable.
  • The storage bags are heavy, about 60 lbs.

We have had the Greenland 11 at least 5 years now. We have not used as much as we would like. We find that it is difficult to find put-in areas and to find out what kind of water we are dealing with.

We have had it out in the bays in Newfoundland, even in heavy wind we made good headway. We've paddled the St. John River at the height of Fredericton, NB, very successfully. 

It is a pleasure to steer. We've put in above the dam and had the sail on her and she is quite stable no hint of wanting to flip and she just flies above the waves. Wonderful boat. Now that we are retired we should get more use out of it.
