"Know Your Canoe"

Understand the terminology, and how subtle differences in size & cross section, rocker, or materials can make a big difference to your canoeing experience.

Length: Longer canoes will have greater hull speed, better tracking and greater potential for carrying capacity. Shorter canoes will be more maneuverable and lighter in weight.

Width: or beam, is given in two measurements: the beam at the gunwale and the beam at the 4" waterline. The 4" waterline beam has the greatest influence on performance. Wide-beamed canoes offer great stability but may be somewhat slow. Narrow canoes may be less stable but afford better efficiency and hull speed.

Depth: Greater depth allows for increased carrying capacity and better water-shedding ability. However, deep canoes can be harder to handle in windy conditions and will be heavier. The shape of the bottom of the canoe and how it blends with the sides will influence its performance. Stability of a canoe is affected greatly by its cross section.

Fiberglass: Extremely lightweight with a high strength-to-weight ratio, fiberglass can be formed to very fine design lines when critical performance is paramount.

Royalex® Uniroyal's Royalex®, a multi-laminate composed of ABS, ABS foam and cross-linked vinyl that provides ultra-light weight, excellent strength and resiliency.

PolyLink3™ Three-layer linear polyethylene technology that provides exceptional stiffness, low weight and built-in flotation at an affordable price.

Thermoformed Polyethylene This process uses a single plastic sheet of high density polyethylene to form a canoe over a mold. The thermoformed plastic hull material is durable and provides better abrasion and impact resistance than more expensive fiberglass hulls. Compared to aluminum the plastic hull is less prone to denting and quieter during on water activity.

Since we are now located on a tidal creek, we do not have the demand for canoes that we did at our old location.

Due to tides and wind conditions, kayaks are much more popular in our paddling area. We have limited our stock canoe models.

We will special order any Old Town Canoe model you are interested in.

Note: We do not ship canoes.
