  For a trip of a week or so, a 16 foot

canoe will seem cramped for space. There just isn't enough floor space to get everything reasonably low, without having to pile one thing on another.

Even just another foot of center space, gained with a 17 foot canoe, will be a significant help.

There isn't anything wrong with the canoe you're looking at, except that it's marginal for the sort of hauling you describe. And once you get everyone and everything in it, you may find it sits kinda deep for good handling and to have enough freeboard to fend off waves.
