I am very interested in a new Mohawk canoe. I want a good general purpose tandem that I can also solo, and I want to spend a great deal of time sailing it as well. The 17' hulls are a little heavy, but manageable for me and have the 36" beam I need for sailing. My first decent canoe, I have a cheap fiberglass Indian River square stern 13.5 footer. Mohawk hand lays the glass, and makes each to order. Will customize trim, layup reinforcement etc.
My question pertains to models. The Blazer looks decent, but they will make a Ranger too. Does anyone have access to 1980's Mohawk literature listing models? The owner said the Ranger was more a flat bottom straight sided hull, but I've talked to others that said the Ranger is a Jensen design and pretty slick.
Not "perfect" perhaps, but should do all I need, be stiff (royalex flexes when sailing I hear), and very reasonable! I see decent used canoes but name brand composites hold value very well. I need a boat with a title so I can register it, so many used hulls have no title.
