H20 Canoe Company – Solo 16/6 Review
H2O Composites Solo 16/6 is a multi-purpose, solo canoe with a good blend of stability, efficiency and capacity to satisfy a wide range of skill levels from novice to advanced. A longer waterline, narrower width, finely flared ends and efficiently designed hull offer paddlers a straight tracking canoe with exceptional glide. The Solo 16/6’s sleek asymmetrical profile coupled with its modern tumblehome sides produce a very distinctive looking, performance oriented craft. Slightly rockered bow and stern enhance maneuverability and shed waves to provide a dry ride. Fairly wide and deep the H20’s Solo 16/6 offers good load capacity for extended trips, while its semi-arched hull make it comfortable and steady for day cruising, fishing and sight seeing.
“H2O’s Solo 16/6 is a versatile solo canoe with a glide so good… it’s almost effortless to paddle!”
