OK guys all the talk of square stern canoes got me thinking. I donít want a 20 footer as I often hunt alone. I need to be able to get it up into the SeaSport. I also need something out on PWS in the bays and going to the bear stand and maybe solo moose hunting. So I am considering four 15' options:
Esquif Cargo 95 pounds rated 3hp load 800 lbs. Rolex
Clipper 72 pounds rated 3-4 hp load 1,000 lbs. Fiberglass
Old Town Sport 113 pounds rated 5 hp load 1,600-1,700 lbs. Polyethylene
Scott Makobe 100 pounds rated 4-6 hp load 1,147 pounds. Fiberglass
So what is everyoneís opinion of each and which one would you choose?
PS: I am an experienced canoeist and have been for 44 years. I have been able to run Class III in an Old Town Pack!
