Our New 2018 Boats & Our Historic Fleet of Canoes
The 2018 season brought with it the addition of 8 new high impact 16’ plastic canoes. These are a versatile shorter wider boat that offer great stability and control. Each canoe fits three individuals with its three molded seats. These canoes are used primarily for day trippers. The rest of the fleet are 18’ aluminums. When you see these older boats there is no question they have some history behind them! These boats have rushed down the roaring rivers out west, collided with the granite boulders of the upper mid-west, and meandered through swamps of the south. Most of these boats date back to the ‘70s and have the scars to prove it. Now, in their golden years, they enjoy the more relaxed pace of the Sugar River, providing joy to another generation of paddlers. These boats are generally for camping trips or as additional equipment for day trippers.
