Submitted: 09-26-2013 by Dave

The 15' Grumman Eagle square stern (model number 1540CES)has both good and bad qualities. It is quite light for a large capacity canoe and it is very stable. I have had 4 adults plus a trolling motor and battery in it with no problems.

Being aluminum, this boat will also last just about forever with no maintenance. On the downside, it is pretty tough to paddle, especially solo. It is wide and the outside gunwale makes one have to really stretch to paddle. It also really catches the wind and takes quite a bit of power to drive it. I have also used the newer model Grumman 16' (1640CS) square stern and found it a lot easier to paddle and faster when driven by the same trolling motor. I would recommend the newer model even though it is quite a bit heavier and probably has less load capacity.
