We have named this the little canoe that could! The guys here at C&S Adventures Unlimited will probably start their own navy with these boats!

Pros

  • Amount of weight canoe can hold
  • Very stable
  • Built very well

Cons

  • Seats need a bit more padding
  • A bit heavy
  • Would love a cup holder by the back seat

This is a medium to large sized canoe that can hold some serious weight. Can seat three and hold enough gear for a couple nights on the lake or river. Its wide body makes it very stable in the water.

The molded flip down front and rear seat tend to be a little uncomfortable after a couple hours in the seat but that was solved with a small pillow or PFD. Center seat is a bench style with a small water tight storage area for things like wallets, keys and phones.

It's a bit heavy, so getting to the water or on the roof of the truck by yourself is a pretty rough ordeal. Tried to paddle this guy by myself while it was totally empty and it was a bit hard to control with no weight in the front. Especially in the wind, I ended up going in circles for a bit.

The seats can be unbolted and configured in different ways, making it easier for a single person to control the craft.

All and all this was a great buy and a very solidly built boat.
