The Cascade is ideal for a family with young children and performs well as a wilderness tripping canoe (the Cascade has been paddled down the Nahanni River). It is one of our most stable choices for paddling enthusiasts who require great initial stability. The Cascade is a first choice for paddlers requiring maximum stability in a canoe. It's great for families with dogs as well as kids. The Cascade has sometimes been described as the canoe for the non-canoer. Paddlers with limited experience will feel secure with minimum practice. While paddlers in other canoes are practicing their braces, you'll be working on turns and fast paddling techniques.
Its flared sides make it seaworthy and its moderate rocker ensures a maneuverable craft. The Cascade has a shallow arch hull with soft chines that make it more controllable in severe weather conditions compared to canoes built strictly for speed.
The Cascade is at home on virtually any water condition encountered in recreational paddling, whether river, lake, or ocean paddling. This model also easily adapts to a side motor mount for an electric motor, so you can troll as well as fly-fish. The mount is also great for hunting trips.
The fiberglass layup is stiffened with foam ribs for a lightweight, yet strong, rigid hull. A vacuum bagged foam core layup is used in both the Kevlar® and Ultralight Kevlar® layups.
An optional sliding bow seat is available for paddlers of different weights or for when paddling with kids. The adjustable seat makes it easy to quickly adjust the canoe's trim. The Cascade's large volume comfortably provides storage for extended trips or for carrying a couple of smaller paddlers.
