Product Details

We pride ourselves in having a wide selection of make and models to choose from at Rutabaga, but that means that we sometimes don't have specific models or colors shown on our sales floor. If you want to come and check out a specific boat on our sales floor, please call or email us in advance to set up a viewing appointment. If we don't have the exact make and model you're after on the floor, it could take 45 minutes or more to retrieve that specific boat from our warehouses.

The Backwater 15 square stern canoe is for sportsmen with motorized intentions. The rigid aluminum and wood mounting bracket makes for quick and easy addition of a small motor. Sized for two people and a load of gear, it works great for duck hunting shallow backwater marshes or float fishing rocky rivers. Super stable, the Backwater 15 is a blast when coupled with the right sized motor. We recommend a small outboard in the 2-3hp range, or a trolling motor with at least 55lbs. of thrust to unlock this boats true potential. To off set the weight of the motor, place the battery or gas tank as far forward as possible.

Build Options

Materials

Tuf-weave Flex-Core
Wenonah's Tuf-weave® material is an interwoven fabric made of 50% polyester and 50% fiberglass that out performs either material alone. The Tuf-weave® layup results in our most durable composite canoes. Tuf-weave® canoes offer improved impact resistance and are a great compromise between light weight, performance, and price.

Ultra-light w/ Aramid
Wenonah’s Ultra-light hulls are stiff and incredibly light. They are ideal for efficient distance paddling and for all people or conditions that demand the lightest gear. Our construction features a structural core and ribs laminated into the hull and sides. Extra fabric layers are then added to strengthen specific targeted areas.

Aluminum plates are strategically laminated into the hull, onto which seats, foot braces and all hardware are then riveted. This gives a highly secure connection and eliminates rivet heads on the exterior.

Gunwales

All Wood
All-wood trim is an option on all composite solo and tandem canoes (except the Backwater) and includes hardwood inwales, outwales, end caps, thwarts and handles. Finished with three coats of oil, natural colored wood is standard and a darker walnut stain is optional. Please note, Wenonah's wood selection varies based on the availability of quality wood from sustainable sources. Fasteners are stainless steel. Wood trim is an additional charge.

Silver Aluminum
Aluminum gunwales are extruded to provide a lightweight, stiff, and stable gunwale material for all sorts of boats. Many manufacturers have a specific shape for their brands.

VersiGunwale
The VersiGunwale is a new, exciting option for all Wenonah composite canoes. The new VersiGunwale is slotted on the inner-facing side bow-to-stern to accept all common rail-mounted fishing and accessories. The VersiGunwale also brings additional strength and rigidity to the canoe with only a small weight increase.
