Overview

The Ultralight 17" Ranger (shown in fiberglass with optional black trim) has traditionally been one of the most sought after canoes in our line. Since it's introduction it has become our second most popular model of all time. The Ranger was redesigned in 1995 and the performance significantly improved.Increased rocker will allow quicker maneuvering in difficult paddling situations. Added flare in the bow and stern will provide a drier ride. The volume of the canoe at the 4-6" waterline (about where the paddlers sit) has been increased. This won't slow the canoe down when paddled lightly loaded but it will provide a more seaworthy ride and a larger carrying capacity when required. This Ranger tracks well and is an excellent canoe for the inexperienced, as well as more seasoned paddlers. The 17" Ranger's new design will make it even more suited for schools, camps and the rental industry. The fiberglass ribless layup is one of the toughest available in the fiberglass industry. As in all of our canoes, the bow & stern are reinforced with aminimum of two layers of kevlar. The ribless layup consists of 6 to 7 layers of glass on most areas of the hull bottom. The absence of any ribs or keels eliminates any stress risers' on the bottom of the hull. This will allow the hull to flex under extreme force with a minimum of adverse effects. As with all of our canoes, the bottom will remain rigid under virtually all paddling conditions, providing maximum performance. For rental or group use, the Rangers should be ordered with the optional vinyl gunnel cover. When used in situations involving portaging, the 17" Ranger can be ordered with an optional wooden yoke. 52 lbs.
