Can it handle shoals and very shallow water?
How is it in class 2-3 white water. We have a couple of decent moderate class 3 sections on our creek and we usually pack in at least 100 lbs. sometimes 300. The raft I use now is bulky trying to get through the first 2 hours of technical shallow tree covered banks. I guess my question is how does it handle weighted down in class 2-3?
Hi. Yes it draws only 4-6 inches and I've paddled it in <1 foot of lake water plenty of times. Beaches well and esy to pull out ... Just don't Drag it on land! It gets water heavy when wet and I dragged it 10 ft once and put a rip in the Bottom Rubber, patched ok, but it is fragile out of water.
This canoe is awesome and very stable even in white water. I would not use this in the sea. It paddle not fast has a canoe but is stable, easy to store. If you chop around over the net, you can get a good deal. You can also buy a troller for it.
