Is it a bomber? A Bell 17? A Bear 17? Could be any or all of them. The B-17 will handle a month in the wilderness or carry the whole family for floats on the local river.
It’s a high volume canoe with symmetrical rocker for predictable back ferries, and perfectly sized for four barrels or packs. Or bring the kids and Lassie, then toss in the cooler, and everyone will feel stable and safe day-paddling in the B-17.
B-17s are available in:
- StarLite aramid (42 pounds)
- BlackLite carbon/aramid (46 pounds)
- WhiteGold (58 pounds)
- IXP (65 pounds)
Compared to the popular Northwind 17, the B-17 has more rocker and a symmetrical hull, making it better suited for moving water situations (but a little less efficient as a flat water tripping boat). Order it in the new IXP construction, and you have the ideal family hauler, without ever having to worry about the boat breaking or suffering major damage in case of a smack up against some rocks.
