A versatile and traditional canoe

A review of the H20 Canoe Company 16/6 from Canoeroots and Family Camping magazine.

The versatility of traditional canoes is captured with a symmetrical hull and recurved ends. To reduce wind resistance and maximize efficiency, a slightly longer length and narrower beam are combined with sharp entry and exit lines and a lower sheer. The Canadian’s shallow arch hull design provides a blend of performance and stability. An exceptional shoe keel design aids tracking and protects against grounding, while sacrificing little in the way of maneuverability.
