"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.

Pack ....Lightweight Solo Canoe
There's enough versatility packed into the 12-foot, 33-pound Pack to keep it going from dawn to dusk, with every member of the family taking a turn.

The Old Town Pack is made of tough, lightweight Oltonar/Royalex.® It’s so light that anyone who can paddle solo can carry it; on a portage, to and from the water, on and off the car top. It’s 33 lbs. of freedom — the Pack goes where other canoes can’t.

The canoe’s V-entry hull with keel is an easy paddling design that even a novice can handle. It’s also well suited to the use of a double-bladed paddle. Features include black vinyl gunwales, polyethylene decks with grab handles, and a cane seat.

Saranac 146 XT...Affordable Versatility

How can you improve a centuries-old design? In lots of ways, it turns out. Old Town started from scratch with the new Saranac family of canoes and, by narrowing the shape and slightly lowering the seats they have developed a model that paddles better than most recreational canoes on the market. The Saranac features two contoured seats plus a bench seat perfect for smaller passengers. The bench seat also includes a covered storage compartment, while bow and stern seats incorporate a variety of extras including cup holders, rod holders and storage trays designed to add convenience and versatility to the canoe. The Saranac is affordable family fun!
