The classic Starburst shape in a light, stiff layup like the Echoee. This legendary whitewater tripping canoe deserves a light, stiff hull!
It handles just as you might expect- dry, predictable and snappy! What a difference a stiff hull makes- no oil canning, no loss of power to a floppy hull, and the boat skips across the water. And coming in under 55lbs fully outfiited, it is a welcome relief to those who are tired of humping around a heavy Royalex boat!
