WaterQuest 14' Canoe


This canoe is extremely durable, both stable and maneuverable, and includes features not found on many other canoes.


Hull material

The canoe hull is thermoformed from a shingle sheet of High Density Polyethylene. Polyethylene is many times more impact resistant than fiberglass, it will not permanently dent, and is much quieter than aluminum.


Polyethylene is abrasion resistant but not abrasion proof. Your canoe will sustain some scratches if forced over obstructions such as logs, sharp rocks and gravel. Do not be concerned if you notice the hull flexing as the canoe passes over an obstruction. This flexing is one of the great advantages of polyethylene. It bends and absorbs impact without sustaining serious damage.

    Loading
    When loading your canoe, remember to distribute weight as evenly as possible from the bow to stern, keeping it as close to the centerline as possible. It's also a good idea to tie down any loose gear. If your canoe has a center seat, you can place valuables (like watches and wallets) in the dry storage section of the center seat for their protection. Make certain that the number of passengers and amount of gear does not exceed the capacity limit posted on the canoe's capacity plate. Insist that each person put on a personal flotation device (life jacket).


    Launching

    Launch your canoe from any beach or bank where the water is deep enough to support the hull.


    Paddles

    When selecting paddles, choose one that stands approximately as high as your chin. Blade width should be about 8". It is a good idea to carry an extra paddle in case one is lost overboard. The proper paddles can be purchased from Johnson Outdoors-Watercraft, Sport and Leisure Group.


    Transport By Vehicle

    Roof mount storage racks on cars, minivans, and SUV's should be at least 42" wide to properly support your canoe. If you do not own a roof mount storage rack, an alternative is a cartop transport kit with foam blocks that attach to the gunwales (top edge of the canoe hull)
