The Waterman canoes are more
than simple open Canadian type canoes; they are a complete
canoeing experience - from simply being a family open day
canoe to a camping/sailing/portaging craft capable of being
used to explore normally impenetrable rivers and creeks. The
Waterman 13 canoe is really a small Guide Boat with a beam
of 36", and a central hull depth of 13’’.
Being wider than the typical Canadian canoe of this length,
she is a very roomy stable craft with the capability to carry
a good sail area and to be used to carry a lot of baggage
or to fish from. The hull design has 3 chines allowing a wide
bodied design for stability whilst at the same time having
a low water surface area.
