    Default Pushing the envelope of light weight one man canoes

    If this link works it takes you to a 14 pound canoe.

    Have you ever seen one of these up close and personal ? What do my fellow alaskans think of this one man canoe ? I have a Pack at 33 pounds and i'm thinking I can shave a little length off and be ok with this Nessmuk. No rivers, just lakes. Anybody else crazy like me.

    I don't know TL. I would have to either loose a few pounds or paddle without clothes to make weight.

    no lakes, just ponds! Its not very deep, maybe only paddle in no wake zones?
    Only 10'6" and 27" wide will make a tippy boat.

    Not much of a comfort zone in a canoe like that....I like a little more versatility

    A little thing of beauty, but really, just a kayak w/o the decking.

    "one fool power"..... I love it!

    Too bad for me though; I like at least two fools, gear, and a moose to fit in my canoe!
