Our smallest and what we think is the most fun boat in the range. The hōu 13 is based on a Peterborough Canoe Company design classic. The original design spec was a boat that would carry ‘smallish’ loads, be relatively light and easy to portage, but would track well and paddle easily on open water, lakes, rivers and low grade white water.
The main aim of the boat was to ‘look after the solo paddler’ and their kit, in the majority of conditions including white water.
The ‘baby Prospector’, fine entry on the bow and stern, classic re-curve, moderate tumble home and the classic open canoe look. Complemented by a shallow v hull that gives good initial as well as great secondary stability and assists the solo paddling experience so well.
In modern times we have seen this boat become a firm favourite for smaller paddlers who love the boat for flat water touring, lakes, rivers and canals as well as small white water rapids. The boat rides well due to its limited width and relatively long keel line for a short boat which means its easy to keep up in a group situations if you are solo paddling.
With the boat being relatively small it also makes it very easy to handle off the water, loading onto the car etc is as easy as it gets!
