18-6, the most powerful horse in Easy Rider's stable of open
canoes, is unmatched by any other Royalex® canoe.
While 17 feet is a standard length for open canoes, when you
are paddling the open choppy waters of Puget Sound on a blustery
day, the Raven 18-6 (measuring 18 feet, 6 inches) is just
length and room allow you to stretch out even after
all camping gear and kids have been packed in the canoe.
Raven 18-6 is a larger version of our Raven 17 and shows
an impressive increase in carrying capacity, hull speed,
and stability. It's a favorite pick for wilderness expeditions.
The gentle rocker (rise) of the bow and stern increases the
maneuverability of this craft. This feature improves its sailing
performance and is essential for whitewater. And it makes
launching and beaching easier.
Many options like spinnaker and airfoil sails, outriggers,
rowing packages, and additional canoe bench seats for extra
paddlers can enhance the value of this canoe. The Raven 18-6
is a boat that will extend your canoeing to many new frontiers.
