CLASSIC WOOD CANOES

Guide 16

Old Town Canoe’s heritage started over a century ago through the hand crafted designs of our wood and canvas canoes. The Guide 16 is one of our classic designs that is not only beautiful, it is one that canoe guides have been using in the backcountry for years. The low profile reduces windage while its long flat floor offers a shallow draft and a big cargo space to stow away your gear. The Old Town Guide 16 is sure to be in our line for years to come.

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 (Minimal)

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.
