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.

Shallow Arch Bottom Straight Sides Icon
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.

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.
