I recently acquired this canoe as a solo workout boat. I loved the design and the super lightweight so I had to bring it home. During the maiden voyage, I found the seat height to be a little high as is currently at 8” off the deck. No one got wet but motorboat wakes and turning were a little too stressful. The seat will definitely have to change.
I couldn’t find much information on it during several internet searches so I decided to reach out to Wenonah and ask if they had a spec sheet for this model. Their reply was that their archive goes back to the Jensen 17’ for this ICF type boat. This is the 16’-6” model built in 1983. Subsequent searches were a bust
I thought there may be others interested in the specs for this boat so I did some quick measuring and below are those dimensions. The similar model ICW-C1 is listed in the “Retired” section of Wenonah’s website. I followed the same format for my list.
Bow Height: 15”
Center Height: 11-1/2”
Stern Height: 12”
Maximum Width: 29-3/4”
Max Hull Width @ 4” Waterline: 28-5/8”
Maximum Gunwale Hull Width: 20-3/8”
Width @ Front Thwart: 14-1/2”
Distance, Center Thwart to Front Thwart: 53”
Width @ Rear Thwart: 20-1/4” 20-1/4”
Distance, Center Thwart to Rear Thwart: 67-1/2”
Weight: 33 lbs
I contacted Wenonah about a seat and frame from an Advantage or other performance solo. Their reply was that with the current material and labor shortage, they would not be able to sell me any individual components. Looks like I will forge ahead on my own.
