The Backwater square stern canoe is for sportsmen with motorized intentions. The rigid aluminum and wood mounting bracket makes for quick and easy addition of a small motor.
Sized for two people and a load of gear, it works great for duck hunting shallow backwater marshes or float fishing rocky rivers. Super stable, the Backwater is a blast when coupled with the right sized motor. We recommend a small outboard in the 2-3hp range, or a trolling motor with at least 55lbs. of thrust to unlock this boats true potential. To off set the weight of the motor, place the battery or gas tank as far forward as possible.
Paddle The Right Canoe
Chequamegon Adventure Company stocks and sells many canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddle boards, and that means our inventory on-hand might not include the exact layup or color that you want. We work closely with our manufacturers and sales representatives to stock a variety of paddlesport all season long.
