lovely, flat bottomed canoe has become quite popular. The 34"
beam makes for good stability to carry a 200 lb person with camping
or fishing gear. The slightly rockered keel profile gives good manuverability
without sacrificing tracking.
imagine yourself out in that lake, deep in the woods. There are
lunkers just waiting for someone to drop a bait or cast a fly. I'll
bet that you can carry 14 lbs, a couple of miles, up a mountain?
