River Tripping Canoes
Canoeing.com Definition: Specifically designed to handle fast-moving rivers and streams, these solo and tandem canoes range in length from 15'-17'. Typically, hulls are designed without keels and are symmetrical from end to end, with rounded, shallow-vee, or flat bottoms, and feature flared sides, and generous depth. But the most distinguishing characteristic should be the generous rocker found on each end. In perfect combination, these design features will provide the maximum maneuverability for making quick turns, moving laterally to avoid rocks and ledges, and will soften the effect of crossing sharp eddy lines.
