Canoe Rentals

17ft Fiberglass Canoe (lighter/mid-weight)

17ft Fiberglass Canoe (lighter/mid-weight)

This is a big boat! It's fibreglass hull makes it suitable for backcountry use (you can portage it easier than it's polyethylene cousin). This is the Haida model, which is a bit narrower without sacrifice stability. There is a small keel to help with tracking. Fibreglass boats must be treated with care- you can't bang them around like a polyethylene.

  • 2 Adult PFDs (plus pfd's for your children, should you need them)

  • 1 Boater Safety Kit (500mL cloth bailer, whistle, 50'/15m buoyant heaving line)
  • 1 Lake Map (including a key to the navigational aids)

Features:

  • Squeaky nylon web seats
  • Aluminum gunwales
  • Comfortable carrying handles
  • Ash thwart and yoke (not comfortable)
