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®
Outfitting: #2206 End

Test Report Canoe & Kayak Magazine
"...Easy Rider's Ouzel can carry a
large load and keeps paddlers dry in rough conditions. With
two large paddlers in this boat, it hardly seemed loaded. It
has a consistent feel, tracking and turning predictably. On
flatwater, it travels easily enough for comfortable paddling.
There is a high degree of stability; new paddlers feel immediately
comfortable in this canoe. Paddle solo or tandem, on rivers
or open water, with or without load, in comfort and safety.
That sort of versatility defines a typical all-around canoe..."
