outfitting of this model

Ouzel 15-8 has it all! This mid-sized canoe offers stability, load capacity, roominess, maneuverability, durability, and good speed. It's one of the most versatile canoes available.
The Ouzel's length (15'8") and light weight (66 lbs.) translate into a handy-sized boat which a single person can easily load, unload, and portage. It stows in tight places and is just the right match for small cars, yet, it's roomy and boasts a capacity of 1075 pounds –more than most canoes of greater length!
The Ouzel 15-8 is a true all-around canoe. It serves the needs of the solo sportsman and can take a family on lengthy camping trips. It's a formidable whitewater boat and outperforms most other canoes under sail. And -- it's built of super-tough Royalex® ABS.
