17' 6" RedBird

Redbird 17-6 a fast light daytripper. This Bear Mountain design is an efficient wilderness canoe that has proven exceptionally seaworthy, even in heavy seas around the Magdalen Islands in the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the North Sea. Its keeless shallow-arch hull with moderate rocker combines with a long waterline and fine entry to make it a fast responsive boat. The bow and stern profile are reminiscent of the Long Nose Ojibwa Rice Harvesting canoe. The sides have a moderate tumblehome for lateral strength and to allow outwales wide enough to turn aside waves and spray.
