Shallow Arch Bottom Straight Sides Icon
Shallow Arch Bottom

Shallow arch bottom canoes have less initial stability than flat bottom canoes, but tend to have higher secondary stability. As the canoe is leaned to one side, it will balance better and resist further tipping. Shallow arch canoes are a great all-around canoe but tend to perform best in choppy water, waves and whitewater.

Straight Sides

Straight-sided canoes are a compromise between flared sides (increased secondary stability) and tumblehome sides (narrower beam at deck for easier reach to water). Straight sides are a great option for most recreational users.

Minimum Rocker Icon
Minimum Rocker

Look at a canoe from a side view. If the canoe hull is completely sitting on a hard surface without either end bowed up, it means it has minimum rocker. Canoes with little or no rocker track extremely well but they are much harder to turn or maneuver.
