The Canadian Tripper is modeled from the Atkinson Traveller used by professional guides, sportsmen and wilderness travelers. Boasting a generous carrying capacity, fine entry lines for speed, and a 17’4” length for straight tracking on lakes, the Canadian Tripper is the ultimate tripping canoe. The bow and stern rise over 10" from the mid making for a canoe able to weather the roughest conditions. Well suited for downriver paddling. This E-fusion canoe with wood trim and clear coat finish weighs in at an incredible 42 lbs. (add 2 lbs. for color gel-coat).

Beam - Width of a canoe when measured at its widest point

Chine - Where the curving sides of the hull gradually merge into the bottom

Deck - The triangular piece of material, usually metal or wood, to which the gunnels are attached at the bow and stern

Gunwale - The section along the top of the canoe from stern to bow where the sides meet; a strip along the top of the canoe's sides

Keel - A projection below the hull, running from stern to bow, which adds strength to the hull, protects it from damage, and helps the craft maintain straight movement

Outwale - The outside gunwale

Ribs - Curved strips from gunnel to gunnel that form the shape of a wooden canoe hull; may also be used to add strength to the hull

Rocker - The upward sweep of the keel toward the bow and stern. The more pronounced the rocker, the easier the canoe is to pivot

Tumblehome - The curving inward of the upper section of the canoe. This produces a canoe narrower at the gunnels than at the bulging sides
