Fox Decked Double Paddle Canoe

While Fox is a capable boat and able to cover the miles when desired she is also well suited for quieter adventures. At 42 pounds she can easily be carried on one’s shoulder down to a lake or marsh and slip into the water for an afternoon of casual paddling and exploration. There’s room for a young child or pet forward of the paddler.

Fox with her stability and roomy 6′6″ long cockpit is also a great boat for fishing or photography. Tracking is solid and the bilge panels make it possible to lean the boat and carve gentle turns as you wind up narrow creeks and back waters. Fox is built stitch & glue with 6oz fiberglass cloth on the bottom and a cambered deck. The 2 bulkheads have hatches for access to the dry storage areas behind them and create positive flotation chambers. Foot braces aren’t needed, as it’s perfectly comfortable to paddle with the outside of your knees braced against the coaming, or to sit cross-legged when the mood strikes.
