     I purchased the Raddison 12' double pointed canoe. The company gives you the oars or paddles, they even give away the trolling motor adapter. Also they have anchor rope and sponson with foam bottom. The only problem with this canoe, in this case is couple of problems. Under the canoe has not just 1 keel but having 3 keels, they said it is for balance and give it better tracking. The walls are very thin and can be damaged if using on very rocky stream or river. Those 3 keels are not designed to use on streams or low water rivers, you can get snagged on one keel then the other. I used it on a river in NC, called the Dan River to paddle this river was not easy even though the keels made hard tracking and not good for low rivers with the rocks and falling tree's. I liked the canoe on lakes or ponds but shallow streams and rivers not as good.

     I love this boat for its versatility. We use it recreationally paddling down the Erie Canal or in Irondequoit Bay, NY. Extremely stable and easy to paddle. It also has oar locks in case you feel like rowing. It is double ended so it is comfortable paddling forward or in reverse. It came with an adapter to attach a side mounted trolling motor in the rear.

I have no problem paddling/rowing this boat alone. The foam lining does a great job in deadening the typical noise issues of an aluminum canoe, but the squeaks my husband can create while fidgeting scare the fish just as bad.
