new extra strong lightweight

material is revealed. This may have great implications for us paddlers. I don’t know how easy this is to work with, if stronger than Kevlar, or cost ( this is early in the market) but this could be something to watch:–urc122315.php

Its a metal
So not likely for use with a boat of any type as all metals dent. Cant have dented kayak or canoe.

Sure like all the thousands of aluminum canoes out there.

Imagine the possibility: A Grumman Canoe
That you could easily lift. If I could have an 18 foot Grumman that weighed 40 pounds, I think it might be my favorite boat. I bet I could even figure out that Capistrano Flip!
