Family Recreation/Tripping Canoes

Loading up an Algonquin 17 for an afternoon trip

For decades, the stable, user-friendly wood-canvas canoes built by Chestnut or Peterborough in Canada and Old Town and others in the USA were the standard by which all recreational canoes were judged. Today, their availability is largely limited to reproductions, lovingly built by craftsmen working out of small shops. For many of us who learned to paddle in the traditional wood/canvas canoe, there is no substitute for the feel and motion of the symmetrical hull. In our ALGONQUIN and OTTER series, you will find all the stability and user-friendly characteristics of the very best classic canoes in a modern package created by David Yost, one of America's finest canoe and Kayak Designers.
