Whether you're out tackling a rushing stream or a glass-calm lake, a first timer or professional outfitter, a Grumman versatile double-ender is the right choice. Its wide beam and low profile gives stability and reduced wind resistance. And the double-ender is available in various light and standard weight models, 13 to 18 feet. A 17 ft. heavy-duty version is built specifically for camps and outfitters. Choose standard or shallow draft keels built to meet the needs of flat water canoeists or whitewater challengers.
This canoe seems to be the standard workhorse of every boyscout camp. I have owned one for over two decades and when not abused like in summer camps or rentals, it still looks almost as good as new. As virtually indestructible and no maintenance other than cleaning, this is an investment to plan to hand down across generations.
