Choosing the Right Canoe for You New Topic Printer Friendly Version

  Over simplified and in part just wrong
  Posted by: TommyC1 on Aug-25-06 9:29 AM (EST)
 

This statement was brought up on the advice board.
"A 17 foot or 18 foot canoe will be much faster across the water but will sink like a submarine while shooting whitewater."

That's just wrong.
There are a lot of design criteria besides length that make a boat work in whitewater. A 17' Old Town Tripper is a pretty good whitewater boat, solo or Tandem.
Not sure that I could do better in the space used. I just hate to see folks mislead.
