The SpitFire 13 is a slightly larger version of our original 12-foot SpitFire. At 13' and 29" max beam, it can carry a bit more gear, dog, or person. Rock solid in weather and very efficient, this boat is fun on flatwater as well as moving water. Paddled with a single or double blade paddle, it can carry a week's worth of gear for your next backcountry pond-hopping adventure. Or, pop it off the car top and head out for an after work, evening paddle.

After one year's day-paddling, my Spitfire 13 is still a sweet boat. It's my first pack canoe and I'm really getting to like the double-blade paddle. Car-topping is a breeze and portaging to local ponds is easy too. I take my time getting into boat wet-footed and it's very stable as I paddle. Haven't been out in rough water so can't comment on that. Speed is AOK; I cruise easily at a shade under 4mph and can get a bit over 4mph with effort. The boat is also very handsome. Purchased boat directly from Joe at factory and he was perfectly helpful (but not hovering like salespeople from some other manufacturers).
