White Guide. 17’ x 36” x 10” (5..2m x 90cm x 27cm) 29kg
Traditional design of open canoe with moderate tumblehome and just a little rocker.
This is the ideal touring boat; she tracks well, can handle waves, will turn neatly
with a little lean. Would not be my choice for white water but in any case you would
be better with plastic for that.
Suitable for two paddlers, personally I am happy padding her solo in any but very
windy conditions. Could be fitted with a third/fourth but as with all Canadians will
paddle better with two. Enough capacity for a moderate camping trip.
Prospector 16’ x 35” x 13” (5m x 89cm x 35cm) 29kg
Probably the most popular of all canoe designs, has a moderately rockered and deeper
hull than the White Guide and so is more manoeuvrable and a similar carrying capacity
on a shorter hull.
Hawk - solo canoe. 14’ x 34” x 12”. (4.2m x 89cm x 30cm) 20kg
Good sized solo canoe with enough capacity for day tripping or overnight camping.
Fibreglass with woven cloth (not chopped strand mat) and polyester resin. Heavier
glass and reinforcing ribs on the bottom. Can be made with built in buoyancy tanks
at each end or left open. Central carrying yoke and carrying handles at each end,
webbing seats, varnished wooden gunwales, stainless steel fastenings.
Custom built as required; colour, fit out,...
All three models are car topable (best with roof bars and a tie down for bow and
stern) and can be handled by one adult.
