Sometimes more is better. The Northwind 18 offers the same stability as their flagship Northwind 17, but the additional space provides a little more comfort for a third member of the group or the family dog (third seat is optional at a $110 fee). There’s no need to debate bringing the Dutch oven and camp chairs. The Northwind 18 is ready to haul your gear.
