    WE NO NAH SANDPIPER from £899.00

    The Sandpiper from We no Nah is a very versatile and enjoyable solo canoe. At 13' 6" long with 1.25" of rocker this is a very agile solo canoe that steers so easily with no special strokes. While longer hulls will conquer distance better this one is ideal for shorter trips. The Sandpiper is only moderately wide but is full from bow to stern giving good stability for its size. The seat is placed rearward so the hull trims well with weight forward.

    Although the Sandpiper is manageable for new paddlers, veterans will also find it has a compelling appeal. One use is to substitute for a small touring kayak by using a twin bladed paddle. The Sandpiper tracks and turns well this way, is lighter than a kayak, allows easier entry and has more room for gear. It is supplied with one wood and webbing seta, vinyl gunwales, wood end handles and wood thwart. We supply the Sandpiper in super lightweight but durable Royalex. This canoe is also available in kevlar ultralite and flex core construction.

    The Sandpiper has enough room for a few days light backpacking and there is no lighter canoe for its size for easy transportation and storage.
    • Length 13' 6" (4.11m)
    • Width Maximum 29.5" (75cm)
    • Width Gunwales 27" (68.5cm)
    • Width Waterline 29" (74cm)
    • Weight in Royalex 38 lbs (17 Kg)
    • Colour Green

    Hi Rogue
    I've been looking for a Dagger impulse as an entry level boat to WW as I'm getting better I have found that the Venture prospector I have is a bit big and heavy for where I want to go.
    So would the Wenona fit the bill?( I would be looking at G3 WW), what size are the airbags?,and most importantly is it still for sale?. Cheers Mike B...

    I originally bought it for white water but when someone else saw it I was banned from making alterations . I had to look for something else and ended up getting an ocoee.

    I believe several people have converted sandpipers to WW. I've tried it at Mile End mill and it works fine there. it is narrow enough so you can paddle with your knees wedged against the sides to hold you in place.

    The current air bags are too small for WW.Also For ww you would not want to be a big person.

    My original plan was to move the thwarts out, add extra ones put massive bags in and a foam saddle and straps. once done it would be fun on the tryweryn.

    Mike:

    I'm not saying that you would not enjoy paddling the Sandpiper, but you should be aware that it is a world apart from an Impulse. Even bagged etc the Sandpiper is not a WW canoe in the same way an Impulse is.

    But it could be good fun trying! I like the idea of wider thwarts to increase rocker. It could work to a degree or then again could do some very funny things to the handling of the boat.

    If you go down that route, do please let me know the result.

    Cheers for the advice Tony, I had already decided today that I would not chase the Sandpiper especially as Rogue said it would probably not be suited to a larger person and at 6' and almost 14 stone I think that would include me.So many thanks and I know the boat will sell quickly but if you hear of an impulse for sale give us a shout.Cheers Mike B...

    Good to meet you Rogue, Journey back was a little nightmarish....M42 then the M25 both not behaving

    The Sandpiper is great , paddled it extensively this weekend, very different from the NC Prospector.

    Cheers
