What to think about when buying a canoe - Larry Showler

This article talks about what you should know when buying a canoe. If you’re looking for the one day get away or going on a long canoe trip, you want something that you will be comfortable with while you’re on your way. Here are some simple things that you should know. If you plan on going canoeing with a bunch of people for a couple of days, then you should get a longer canoe that can hold more capacity and weight. If you’re planning to go for a day, then you should get a smaller canoe. The smaller canoe is not as fast, but lighter and can turn much easier than the bigger canoes. The width, depth, and hull can depend on where you’re going and how comfortable you want it to be.

This article taught me a lot on a canoe. I didn’t know how much the length and width could determine the distance that you could be able to go. Choosing the perfect canoe for you is easy when you know you’re stuff.
