Hello Everyone, first time poster here.
I’m in the market for a new canoe.
This is specifically what I need it for.
2 adults, 1 100lb dog, and 1-2 weeks worth of gear. My wife and I are no stranger to packing light, so I’m not super concerned about the gear, but we would like to stop renting canoes now that we will be bringing our dog with us. This canoe will be used primarily in large open water scenarios where we’re not going to be running up on rocks all the time. I
I would like to hear what you all have experienced with different brands and different sizes. I’m no stranger to the world of kayaks but i’m Not overly experienced with the canoe market. I’m also considering this a long term investment, I don’t mind spending 2-3k to get a good one that’s going to last me 20-30 years. I’m going to look at a Wenonah Itasca in their Tuf-weave Flex-Core material next week but I could be persuaded to look elsewhere if some of you with more experience think it’s best. Thank you
