What is a canoe?
For those people who are unfamiliar with canoes, here is some general information: A canoe is a lightweight narrow boat, typically pointed at both ends and open on top, propelled by one or more seated or kneeling paddlers facing the direction of travel using a single-bladed paddle. Historically, canoes were dugouts or made of bark on a wood frame, but construction materials evolved to canvas on a wood frame, then to aluminium. Most modern canoes are made of moulded plastic or composites such as fibreglass.
What are the benefits of using an inflatable boat?
Inflatable boats can be a great way to spend time on the water for fishing, recreation or sightseeing. Here are some of the main reasons why people love inflatable boats:
- Flexible: The very first advantage of inflatable boats is their flexibility. You can bring inflatable boats with you wherever you go. They do not need boat trailers or huge truck to be transported. Whenever you want to use your inflatable boat, you can take it out straight from your car boot. Inflating them is quick and easy, particularly if you use a pump.
- Stable: Most inflatable boats are built with 2 large buoyancy tubes on the side and a flat floor in between of them. The large size buoyancy tubes provide a low centre of gravity for the boats as well. These designs make inflatable boats sit flat on the water surface, making them almost impossible to flip over.
- Lightweight: Although the loading capacity of inflatable boats is huge, that doesn't mean they are heavy. This makes launching them easier and also means you can manage them alone if you fancy a spot of solo-boating.
- Economical: Compared to many other types of boats, inflatables are reasonably cheap to buy and to maintain. This makes it a great choice if you are new to boating, or are not sure if you can get a lot of use out of your boat.
Does Anaconda sell other types of boats too?
