Is Royalex still the material of choice for light weight in an upper-end canoe? I had an Oldtown Tripper 20+ years ago when my kids were young that was a dream for one-man loading. I sold it like an idiot, realized I couldn't live without one and bought a used Crosslink3 (plastic) Discovery. It's a battleaxe but weighs at least 20 lbs. more and is shorter to boot. At my age, it's time to upgrade...light is good!
