H20 Canoe Company – Solo 15 Review
H2O Canoe Company’s Solo 15 is slightly smaller and lighter solo for paddlers seeking a stable, user-friendly canoe, which is easy to handle both on and off the water! Although a little slower than H2o’s Solo 16/6, the Solo 15 is still remarkably efficient and tracks well for its length. Its flared ends and distinctive modern-tumblehomed sides keep water out, while permitting a comfortable efficient paddle stroke without reaching. A shallow arch hull is predictable and easy to control for beginners and intermediate canoeists in moderate conditions. Lighter than most kayaks of comparable length the Solo 15 canoe is easier to portage, offers greater capacity, and easily out performs many kayaks of similar size – try it with a kayak paddle!
“H2O’s Solo 15 offers it’s a wonderful compromise between overall performance & stability”. Its lightweight and user-friendly canoe with enough room to hold all your camping, fishing and photography gear!”
