This review refers to 15' version. It's Tan Fiberglass with ash trim and ribs. A beautiful, compliment getting boat. Like the 13' 6" Mansfield, it has a flat bottom. It's almost 40" Wide. Good pond canoe. Does "oil Can " a little in the center. Very stable in flat water. Not for white water. It is mainly used in sheltered, salt water bays on Long Island. When the wind kicks up the waves, it becomes a challenge. The Mansfield is not well suited for waves. It came (used) with a 30 lbs thrust Sears Gamefisher trolling motor. It can go for 3 hrs. on a full charge at about 5 mph! Motor adds greatly to the range because the hull is not easily driven. I bought a 4 blade Sears propeller to replace the 2 blade original propeller. It was smaller in diameter but the extra blades added noticeable speed. Great value for ten bucks! Still a beautiful boat.
