  More on heeling problems
  Posted by: guideboatguy on Oct-21-12 9:57 PM (EST)
 

I mentioned this on another thread recently. Many canoes don't need to be "heeled to the rail" to free the stems, because they stems lift "enough" with just moderate leaning of the boat. Unlike these OTHER boats, Wenonahs have their maximum width concentrated within a very small portion of the overall length, and heeling them only buries the midsection, and of course when that happens, the stems don't lift, or at least they don't lift enough. Don't expect either of these boats to do as most other canoes do, and become much more maneuverable when leaned a moderate amount. They won't.
