A family fun canoe made of low-maintenance polypropylene
Stable enough for fishing or nature watching, versatile and durable enough for family outings, the Guide canoes offer a unique cross-section and stabilizing chines for exceptional stability and rugged durability. Its sharp entry makes for surprisingly efficient paddling. The hull is constructed of PolyLink3, using three-layer linear polyethylene technology for stiffness, low weight and built-in flotation at an affordable price. With a foam core that provides built-in flotation and insulates against cold and noise, these canoes are stiffer and more durable than single-layer canoes with keelsons. Each canoe features black vinyl gunwales, polyethylene deck with grab handles, contoured seats and an ash carrying yoke.
