See the world below you with remarkable clarity in this 2 person clear canoe. This hard shell transparent canoe provides 100% visability. It weighs only 40 lbs., and is lighter than most aluminum or wood canoes.
This clear canoe is beautiful and has a highly functional design. And it's tough. It's made out of the same polycarbonate material used in the production of bulletproof glass. The optional seats provide excellent back support and comfort. It comes with a retractable skeg system that improves tracking which among other things, makes it easier to paddle long distances.
This clear canoe isn't meant to paddle in choppy water out in the ocean, it's not designed for paddling long distances, it has it's limitations just like any other canoe or kayak. It's a great "all purpose" kind of design though. The simple open design allows you to fit two people plus some gear in it. Because of it's width, it's not meant for long distance paddling,
but it's very stable and I stand up and paddle (and fish) in mine and I do not use the optional out-rigger. I also have a motor mount (I will be offering the motor mount as an option by spring of 2014) that I use on my clear canoe. I've used an electric trolling motor on my canoe with the mount but I prefer to use my old 1958 3 horsepower Johnson on it.
This canoe / kayak hybrid also maneuvers really well.
These canoe / kayak hybrids are very tough and can handle a lot of abuse. The abuse will show eventually though. I've kept one of my own person clear canoes strapped to the roof of my truck almost constantly for at least 7 years now so the "clearness" has faded and it's not very opaque anymore. If you want your clear canoe to remain clear for a long time then cover it when you're
not using it, don't leave it out in the sun and elements exposed. Scratches that you get on the bottom of the canoe will "fill in" when you put it on the water so they won't affect visibility much. Scratches that you get on the inside of the canoe will affect the visibility so you should take your shoes off when your in the canoe. It's best not to use anything to clean your canoe other than good clean water and a sponge. If you need
to use soap, use a very mild solution of dish soap.
