The Tripper ‘S’ is 16’6″ with a four-inch waterline width of 31.5″ (versus 33″ in the Tripper). The canoe is asymmetrical with noticeable tumblehome that starts in front of the yoke and increases significantly towards the stern thwart. This results in a maximum beam at the gunnel of 32″.
The Tripper ‘S’ is a delight to paddle solo yet it still provides sufficient volume for tandem wilderness trips. It has slightly more rocker for its overall length than the Tripper, which makes it more maneuverable and easier to control when paddled solo.
If you are one of the many canoeists who find themselves without a partner on occasion , the Tripper ‘S’ is just what you have been looking for; it comes standard with a kneeling thwart for solo paddling. This thwart can be easily removed when not in use.
Ultralight Kevlar® canoes are built without any exterior gelcoat, thus the hull has the ‘honey’ color of Kevlar®. The absence of gelcoat results in a weight savings of approximately 10%. The first layer is woven S-glass which is very abrasion resistant and is stronger under compression than Kevlar®. Two layers of Kevlar® are then applied with extra reinforcement in areas of high stress.
