What Size Should the Canoe Be?
Here are some suggestions for the various canoe lengths:
10' - 16'
|For solo use with a total capacity up to 900 lbs, or for two paddlers on short day trips on sheltered waters.|
|14' - 18'||Touring, tripping, and sport canoes for at least two paddlers with a capacity up to 1100 lbs on extended trips.|
|18' - 36'||For families of three or more, groups and camps where high capacity and extra stability are required and long distances may be involved.|
