For angling enthusiasts, the Basswood 17 is the best canoe, whether on an extended wilderness trip or fishing local backwaters.
Construction: Aramid. Ultra-light hulls are stiff and incredibly light. They are ideal for speed and distance paddling and for all people or conditions that demand the lightest gear. In Wenonah's Ultra-light construction a structural-foam core and ribs are laminated into the hull and sides. For the Basswood 17, they also add extra fabric layers to strengthen specific targeted areas. Aluminum plates are strategically laminated into the hull. Seats, footbraces, and all hardware is then riveted into these plates. This gives a very secure connection and eliminates rivet heads on the exterior. Aramid, the fiber used for aerospace, body armor and bulletproof vests, is amazingly light and strong.
