H20 Canoe Company – Pathfinder 16 Review
The Pathfinder 16 by H20 Canoe Company is their most stable and predictable canoe. Its slightly wider 36″ width combines with a very flat-bottomed hull and deep keel to create an exceptionally straight tracking, well-mannered canoe. Parents with small children or pets appreciate the Pathfinder 16’s roominess and enormous stability. Entry level, infrequent and casual paddlers are inspired by its secure, no surprises nature. Photographers, fisherman, hunters and other activities that require stability are also attracted by its gentle, steady performance. Its ability to handle large loads and predictability has quickly made H2O’s Pathfinder 16 one of Frontenac Outfitters most sought after rental canoes.
“H2O’s Pathfinder 16 is an affordable, user-friendly, predictable, quality built canoe made right here in Ontario… need we say more!”
