This canoe is an excellent product. Material is light-weight and durable. I can't see how anyone thought it wasn't sturdy. My wife, my baby, and I go canoeing every week in a river... and we've never flipped it.
This Canoe is awesome! I've never owned a canoe before, but am loving this one!-Especially the price! It is very well constructed-sturdy. It does track very well when there is evenly distributed weight(the front has to be down for the keel to work). I have had it out many times,both calm and choppy,and it is very stable-for a canoe. I use it on the local lake here, and have had it out when there was 1 foot high white-caps. It took it like a champ. For choppy conditions like that, I kneel down on a yoga pad I stole from my wife. Sitting on the seats is a bit too tipsy. But in normal conditions the seats work just fine!On one outing I layed down in the bottom and took a nap! I love this canoe! It's Great!
We've used the canoe several times since getting it and love it. It's used primarily for fishing with my two sons on a moderate sized lake. It portages well and seems fairly stable (even with a high energy child in the middle).
I bought this for the kids to use on our small (20 acre) lake. Probably not the best choice for rivers and streams but for calm water leisure use you can't find a better value, IMO.
This canoe is just as discribed. The cup holders are a little more shallow than I was hoping for but they still work. I love the fishing pole holders just wish they had one in the back too. It's wide enough that I can stand in it and not tip it over, I do have to be careful though. I have had 3 people in it and didn't tip it over and have used it for several weekends now. Once on a lake with some heavy boat trafic even when the waves were comming in from the side we still didn't flip.
Pelicans fly, float and swim - all this one did was sink!! It seems strong enough but its not stable. no sooner did my friend and i get in and with ANY movement it would start rocking and we couldn`t stop it from flipping over. We ended up going swimming 3 times - that was it. It was returned today, the day after we got it. I would not have been as harsh with the rating if i had not lost $110 on the shipping, they don't return it. the other person who rated this loved it so maybe we just got a bad one, i don`t know. You decide if you want to risk losing $110 on shipping.
