Like the Saranac 146, the Saranac 160 canoe packs in a ton of features at a great price. The Saranac 160 is longer than its smaller sibling but still features rod holders, storage options and storage trays as well as two contoured seats with comfortable seat backs and a center bench seat (perfect for smaller passengers). The Saranac 160 can be loaded up with gear and performs well on longer trips. A great option for families, anglers or casual canoeists looking for a recreational canoe designed to move through the water with ease.

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
