Chicot 17 Description

The Chicot has been designed by Camp Keewaydin guides, Dylan & Emily Schoelzel of Salmon Falls Canoe. It is a traditionally shaped canoe with a shallow arch bottom, fine entry lines and full quarters at the gunwale.

Experienced paddlers feel the Chicot is the finest wilderness tripping canoe on the market. It has tremendous acceleration and glide, carries a big load and it extremely seaworthy. Take the Chicot for a test paddle and find out why it is fast becoming a Swift staff favorite!
