  Tripping canoes
  Posted by: ppine on Mar-30-13 11:27 AM (EST)

I have been contemplating a new tripping canoe. These are some of the best:
Nova Prospector 17
Esquif Prospector 17
Wenonah Cascade
Swift Dumoine
Swift Yukon
Hellman Slocan

In a second category that is close, but not as good:
Bell Alaskan
Dagger Venture 17
Penobscot 17
Wenonah Champlain

The boat for your conditions should be long with high volume, arched bottom, flared hull, at least 14 inches deep, a beam of at least 35-36 inces, and lastly rocker, at least 2 inches, 3 is better. The Slocan has 4 inches but is hard to find in the States.

 Great Products from the Buyers' Guide:
