My wife and I are aredent paddlers and we own a 17' prospector that is getting rather old in the tooth. We decided to purchase a new canoe and after much deliberation and testing, picked the Sea Clipper by Clipper Canoes. We have just returned from our maiden voyage on Clearwater/Azure lakes where we put our Sea Clipper through it's paces. First, we loaded it to the gunwales and paddled 14 km to the our campsite. The Canoe was smooth and fast. We covered the distance effortlessly mainly because the tracking was excellent requiring few correction strokes. That afternoon, the wind picked up and produced some decent waves, approx. 2-3' from trough to crest. We took the canoe out empty and played in the waves. The boat responded well to oncoming waves and broadside waves. We felt very safe and in control. Finally, we took the canoe up the Azure river, swollen from spring melt and recent rain and running quite fast. The Sea Clipper did very well crossing eddy lines and riding standing waves. It kept it's head in cross currents. Overall, we are very happy with this boat and highly recommend it to anyone who requires a big boat for extended trips in big water.
