Upper Boreas- Poor initial…

Upper Boreas-

Poor initial stability. Very tricky canoe. There are better options for tripping or fishing. Fit and finish 2.5/5. Definitely demo this before buying.

There is room to improve… Lower Boreas seems to have decent following if you want the more kayak design.

I've owned this canoe since May 2019 and I love everything about it. It is light weight, stable and quick. Love how they use a foam core in the bottom for rigidity and floatation. I've taken it on our family's small lake to the St. Regis Canoe Area of the Adirondacks, it is super easy to portage. I've paddled this canoe with both a single blade and double blade paddles and love how it responds. And the price is excellent for a quality boat!
