Description

Designed for families and sportsmen, the Wenonah Fisherman is a stable platform for outdoor enjoyment. Short and wide, the Fisherman delivers easy turning and lots of initial stability. Its relatively flat bottom is very steady on fair waters, and its broad beam draws just inches. The easy control and shallow draft (draught if you're British) give access to areas that would be difficult for other craft, even many other canoes.

Being that it is a stable, small hull, the Fisherman is an ideal choice for camps or at a lake cabin where kids will often use it. Since youngsters are light, they find it to be a fine paddling canoe that's also safe on waves due to its depth.

Adults, however, like the Fisherman for wildlife viewing, star-gazing, or other uses that do not include big waves, heavy loads, or long travel. It's often used by one or two people for hunting or fishing. (If you go alone, a good way is to sit in the bow seat facing the stern. This puts you closer to the center of the canoe. It also may help to place tackle or other gear ahead of you to achieve proper trim.)

Although designed for stability, not speed, the Fisherman still outperforms any other 14' canoe. Having a racing background tends to do that to your designs - for more than 30 years they have been constructing extremely light and tough canoes. Wenonah Canoe is the world’s largest maker of canoes using Kevlar®.

I don't swim, so having a super stable canoe is a must. On most outings, I don't even get my shoes wet.
