I have been searching through the archives but I haven't come across this particular question. In regarding square back canoes, some have said that paddling these particular canoes suck. How so? Could the problem be rectified by rigging a rudder when the outboard stays in the garage? Also, I see a lot of kudos going to Grumman, Scott, and a few other brands. What do these brands have over say, Old Town or Coleman. As you can see, I am starting to do my early research on a future investment (probably a craigslist special) and so I'm trying to get a good picture on what makes a canoe a good canoe. Sounds like Tohatsu makes a decent powerplant for this purpose.
Out of sheer curiosity, do any of you take your power canoes on the Big Su?
Thanks for all your input.
