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.

A smaller, more stable Pearl, we designed the Opal for pleasure paddling. An ideally sized canoe for two people to explore small lakes and streams, the small size also works great for parents paddling with kids. Paddle it backwards from the bow seat to freight large loads or big dogs.

Build Options

Materials

BlackLite
Proprietary carbon outer with Aramid reinforcements. Combines the stiffness of carbon fiber and the excellent tensile strength of Aramid. Our full wet vacuum bag and foam core allows us to artfully balance strength and weight. For those that want significantly greater durability than StarLite, yet value a lightweight canoe. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings. Color: Black carbon weave.

IXP
Substantial Innegra with an inner blanket of Aramid. Innegra has excellent impact absorption, great flex and good abrasion resistance. A full wet vacuum bag makes a durable, reasonably light canoe. Multiple layers of Innegra with no foam core or ribs means a canoe capable of extended river tripping and expedition whitewater. An extremely durable lamination with far better performance than Royalex. Exterior resin coated because gel coat chips and cracks when subjected to substantial impacts. Color: Innegra weave.

StarLite
All Aramid. Our proprietary yellow and black makes a stunning moiré pattern. Full wet bag minimizes resin and creates the lightest weight canoe available. Foam core, ribs and internal reinforcements make a stiff, efficient hull. The choice of flat-water paddlers everywhere. Exterior resin coated for maximum weight savings.

StarLite
Carbon and Black Innegra co-woven outer with inner blanket of proprietary yellow and black aramid. Our lightest lamination at the expense of some durability, a dream for wet footed portaging. Only available with E6 trim and E6 parts: canoe weights reflects E6/E6 savings. Stealth is lighter than StarLite and has lower impact resistance. Weight savings and wet footed portaging go hand in hand. Many options are not offered with Stealth including: skid plates, adjustable seats, third seats, and kneeling thwarts.
Color: black carbon and black Innegra weave.

Gunwales

Aluminum
Bronze anodized gunwales, thwarts and grab handles; thermoformed deck plates; ash portage yoke; laminated, contoured web seats hung on ash trusses.

Wood
Northstar wood trim consists of oiled white ash gunwales, sculpted and laminated black walnut and ash end decks, walnut and ash laminated contoured web seats hung on walnut trusses, walnut and ash laminated thwarts and yoke, and stem mounted tie down loops.

Laminated black walnut and ash creates a distinctive and refined canoe that is stronger and lighter. Wood trim adds two to three pounds per canoe.
