  L/W according to CEW; Wildfire
  Posted by: Glenn_MacGrady on Oct-27-12 11:10 PM (EST)
 

According to my 2009 version of Charlie's chart, the Argosy, Wilderness and Yellowstone all have a L/W of 6.0.

I like my black-gold Wildfire a lot, but I don't think of it as multi-day tripping canoe. Of course you can trip in anything if you want or have to, but I prefer something with more volume and freeboard than a Wildfire/Yellowstone. Maybe it would work for Windwalker at his weight and a light load.
