Tahe Marine - Greenland 5.45m x 50cm. extra low volume. smaller paddlers or experienced fun fun fun, rolling ease not for expeditions or biguns, no safety decklines, rescue issues due to low freeboard Tahe Greenland review 
Tide Race - Xcite 5.25m x 53cm. medium. lots of different sizes fun, fast, capable all-rounder, good in surf, high-quality build pity they can't make it in the UK, why isn't it cheaper if made in Taiwan? Don't understand all the versions Tiderace website 
Valley - Aquanaut Club 5.2m x 57cm. large volume. all but the shortest cheap and tough plastic club boat poor skeg cleat takes skin off, problems with rotting Valley hatches, Northshore Atlantic much better
