CLASSIC WOOD CANOES

Otca 16

Wood and canvas canoes first appeared in the late 1800s, gaining favor as a more durable, lower maintenance alternative to the Native American birch bark designs. The OTCA is one of Old Town’s classic designs. It is one of our quintessential wooden canoe designs which have remained virtually unchanged since the turn of the century. It is beautiful to look at and even better to paddle.

Flat Bottom Flared Sides Icon
Flat Bottom

Flat bottom canoes offer great initial stability. They tend to feel very secure on calm water but become slightly less comfortable as the waves get larger or as you lean to one side. Flat bottom canoes are great for the sportsmen and general weekend warrior looking for a solid platform.

Flat Bottom Tumblehome Sides Icon
Tumblehome Sides

A tumblehome design tends to have a narrower width at the gunwale than at the waterline. This allows the paddler to have a clean stroke with a closer reach to the water.

Moderate Rocker Icon
Moderate Rocker

From a side view the canoe has only a slight banana shape while sitting on a hard surface. Moderate rocker in a canoe means it will turn easily on the water but can also track well for short to longer distance paddling.
