Does anybody have information about the amount of rocker this canoe has?
We are playing with the idea of buying a folder. The idea even came from my other half who suggested we should look into buying one as she sees advantages over our current fleet of canoes in ways of weight and ease of transport (no loud bulky canoe on top of the car). (also suggesting I get rid of one or two canoes I never use anyway...)
We currently have a Swift Dumoine 164, which has considerate rocker, is great as an allround river cruiser, but is hard to handle in windy conditions.
My first choice for a folder would be one that has a straighter keel line to enhance tracking, like the Ally 17 or a pakcanoe 165/170. The Ally 16.5 is easier to get my hands on in the second hand market though...
Can anybody compare tracking of an Ally 16.5 DR with for instance a Swift Dumoine 164 or any Prospector in the same length range?
