for that perfect cruising canoe in the 17-foot range? Take
a close look at our Raven 17. It's a classic in its own right
and highly appreciated by the paddling connoisseur.
A distinctive-looking family-sized cruising canoe, Raven 17
is seaworthy and fast. This boat tracks well and barely creates
a ripple when gliding through the water... you can easily
set the pace on a cruising trip with other paddlers.
The Raven's slender shape allows for easy paddling (using
bent-shaft canoe paddles optimizes the design).
Many solo adventurers choose the Raven 17 for exploring the
Bowron Lakes in British Columbia or paddling the Yukon River.
Maneuverability for sailing and easy whitewater, seaworthiness
for all-weather rowing with the Oarmaster Sliding Seat...
Raven 17 has all this and more!
Raven 17, built in a super-tough Royalex® ABS construction,
offers plenty of freeboard -- good for rough-water rowing.
The Oarmaster is positioned between the two bench seats. The
rigger arms are securely fastened to tie-down eyes on the
boat rails. #1706 Oarmaster Rowing Sliding
