Description

The Wenonah Argosy is made for solo exploration of rivers and streams, whether paddling the Missouri River at dawn or running the riffles and eddies of the Shenendoah. It's nimble enough to carry you through cross currents and over eddylines. 

It has added depth and volume to handle rough water and even whitewater, and plenty of rocker in the keel for maneuverability. The Argosy's ability to lean predictably in tight turns builds in confidence. We recommend it to intermediate and advanced paddlers. 

Flex-core construction creates a more rugged canoe than Wenonah's Ultra-light core, and is meant for general paddling on all but extreme waters. In Wenonah's Flex-core constructions, a structural-foam core is laminated into the hull, orienting the composite fibers carefully to distribute loads. Wenonah adds an extra fabric layer to the whole hull. This adds a bit of weight but makes for a stronger, more rigid canoe. Side ribs are not needed because this layup distributes more material throughout the hull. The result is a tough canoe that is still fairly lightweight. Using Kevlar® in the Flex-core layup adds a little weight, but saves some money. The extra layers of fabric and gel-coat finish makes these boats slightly more resistant to damage than their Ultra-Light canoes as well.
