Heron 17 R Multi-Use Craft: Rowing, Paddling,
Featherweight Kevlar/Graphite Construction
17 R is one of Easy Rider's most popular rowing trainers...
and for good reason! Its 825-pound capacity and 17-foot length
allow it to be rowed with one or two Oarmasters.
Whether you row solo by yourself, row with a companion as a
passenger, or row double with a partner, this boat maintains
Heron 17 R is a stable and seaworthy all-weather rower equally
at home on lakes, rivers, and saltwater. Best of all, this Kevlar®/Graphite
featherweight is easy to cartop and portage by a single person.
That means the Heron will get lots of spur-of the-moment use
for daily exercise and relaxation close to home.
Heron 17 R features
the design & handling characteristics of our Raven
17, but has a lower profile and a sharper bow/stern.
Heron 17 R is also a highly popular
tripping canoe... Whether you want a canoe for day tripping,
weekend campouts, or extended lightweight camping trips, the
Heron is an excellent choice.
The Heron's featherweight Kevlar®/Graphite construction
with an Airex foam core weighs a mere 42 pounds, making solo
portages a breeze. If your path to the water involves steep
trails, stairs, or a slippery beach, you will be glad you chose
our Heron 17 R!
