Recreational Canoes ~ a Brief History

Recreational Canoes are typically about 15- feet in length, which is one or two feet shorter than most ‘Tripping and Performance’ Canoes. Recreational Canoes are normally 36 inches wide, which is slightly wider than some Tripping / Performance Canoes.  Recreational Canoes tend to have flatter bottoms to maximize initial stability. Recreational Canoes often incorporate a keel to aid tracking (the ability to go straight) and to provide even greater initial stability for less skilled paddlers. Recreational Canoes purposely sacrifice a degree of overall efficiency for an added level of user-friendliness and predictability. These canoes satisfy a wide range of functions from casual outings, family, kids and cottage environments, to short trips in calm usually protected waters.
