17ft Polyethylene Canoe (heavy & stable)

17ft Polyethylene Canoe (heavy & stable)

This is our biggest and toughest canoe- but it sure is heavy. Take it from us, you don't want to be lugging this monster down a portage trail, unless you have a portage cart or you enjoy torture (we have lighter models, check them out). This canoe is really stable, yet as with all Penobscots, it will track nicely (goes fairly straight).

Suitable for a small family and some well packed camping equipment.

Your rental will include:

  • 2 Adult PFDs (plus pfd's for your children, should you need them)
  • 2 Paddles (plus small children seats and paddles, 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
