...with a little length to provide initial stability over width. Usually 15-16' will work, and definitely with a hull/rocker for moving water. The material..??? expedition kevlar, of course polyethylene would be ideal, but heavy to portage...
*IF I read your initial msg right...you might try getting some moving water time under the belt before going into Class III. Not that difficult, but if you haven't worked through Class I & II...there's always going to be some aspect of the canoe hull's behavior that might throw you a curveball.
