  Whitesell Canoes
  Posted by: pblanc on Apr-08-13 1:53 PM (EST)

Nolan Whitesell is a well-known and highly skilled whitewater boater who made whitewater canoes. Whitesell canoes have not been made for quite a few years now.

Whitesell made three different models. The Piranha is 14' 3" in length, the Descender 13' 1" in length, and the Whirlwind is 12' long.

Nolan usually outfitted his boats with Perception rotomolded polyethylene saddles like the one in this photo:

Those saddles have not been made for a long time either. They do come up for sale from time to time if you really want one. Otherwise, you could substitute a pedestal saddle made of minicell foam which would be much lighter.

Whitesell canoes are whitewater boats. They are stable, deep, and dry. They make decent river tripping boats if there is at least a bit of current. They are pretty slow on stationary flat water, but would be perfectly fine for short distance cruises and just fooling around.
