This canoe is a 14' plastic canoe that is built for fishing. This is a very stable canoe, however it is very heavy and is slow in the water. The nice thing is there is plenty of room. It does have an insulated cooler in the center that also is used as a seat. There are handles at the front and rear to carry but there is no yoke in the center to carry this alone. I have carried mine by putting the middle seat behind my neck. That is not ideal, but works in a pinch. Over all I would say this is an OK canoe for the price and pretty indestructible. If you are looking for a long distance fishing rig, you might want to pay a little more for a lighter canoe. I have put a trolling motor on mine on occasion when I'm fishing by myself and that worked great. However, I prefer to paddle so typically do just that.
