Canoes: Wenonah, Mad River, NuCanoe

Royalex is dead, long live T-formex. Several years ago the plastics company that supplied Royalex to all the world's canoe builders quit making it. After years of development and testing, T-formex is basically the new Rolyalex; not exactly the same but a foam core sandwich laminate material with similar properties including weight, buoyancy, looks, and ruggedness.

NuCanoe blends the safety of a Sit-On-Top kayak with the roomy freedom of a canoe. These are very popular for fishing on lakes and gentle rivers.
