I am looking around at small canoes and small tandem kayaks. I am going to get one or the other as a way to enable me to get my dog out with me. I saw a post the other day about Mohawk selling their company.
I visited their site and they apparently have some leftover inventory that they are selling at what seems to be great prices.
Has anyone ever paddled a glass version of their 14’ Sportline? It is billed as a tandem that is easily paddled solo, which is what I am looking for.
I do not know the particular model, but
14’ boats designed as tandems are by necessity wide, and therefore do not paddle well as solos.
It works a little better going the other way. My 14’ 6" Mad River Guide is about 29" wide, and can be paddled tandem by a SMALL (under 300 pound total) tandem team.
I read on paddling.net about all sorts of people claiming to paddle 14’ tandems successfully solo. Well, it depends on what you call success, but I can run rings around them in my MR Guide, flatwater or whitewater.
the Wenonah Solo Plus. Great for either tandem or solo paddling with out sacrificing the speed.
I took a look at the Wenoha site and could not find anything about a Solo Plus.
Got to the home page of Wenonah’s web site.
Click to enter.
Click on “Canoes”
Click on “Models”
Scroll down to “Multi-Seat Canoes”
Mark, here’s the link
Don’t know why I could not find it when I looked but I have just read about the Solo Plus. It does look like it might suit my needs for either a solo or a tandem nicely. Guess I will begin to look for one at the local shops and take a look in person.
thanks for the help,

in Greenville, SC has a demo boat he’s willing to sell. It’s in Royalex, has webbed seats, and it’s beige.
I thought you were going to buy that boat?
