My new favorite toy. This…

Submitted by: CDeVries on 5/12/2020
My new favorite toy. This outrigger canoe has been a joy to paddle. Incredibly fast, incredibly stable and very light (22 lbs). I can average 6-7 mph over two hours. The OC does well in wide rivers and lakes and is immune to wind as it sits so low in the water. It would not be suitable for narrower rivers due to the outrigger. The best thing about it is you can enter a large body of water (like Lake Michigan) and ride bumps and swells and it still perform great in flat water. The only downside is the price.
