Here is a very seaworthy canoe that will carry a load in rough conditions. This has lines that follow the same high performance hull form as the very popular SnowShoe 14™. You can expect excellent tracking and speed at the expense of stability. I would suggest that this be used by people with a certain amount of canoe experience, in order to prevent any unpleasant surprises.

One of the main differences in this hull is the use of the truss gunwale structure. This adds a little weight and a bit more work; however the hull becomes much sturdier. Optional: the center thwart can be installed with wing nuts to allow the use of a sliding seat rowing rig.
