15-9HuronCruiser

Huron Cruiser

The lines for this canoe were taken from an original 'Huron' built in cedar/canvas by the Peterborough Canoe Company. It was a second grade model in a series of Cruiser canoes that measured from 16'x33" to 18'x37". "They have good carrying capacity while retaining a light draft, and are an easy paddling craft that can be handled well in rough or swift waters. The gunwale line is straighter in these models and is lowered at bow and stem, thus offering less wind resistance." The rounded bottom shape may reduce carrying capacity but the paddler may expect a quick and responsive craft." ...from the 1929 Peterborough Canoe Co. catalogue.

Two types of optional keels were offered; the shoe keel (1/2" thick x 1 3/4" wide) for added protection or a lake keel (7/8" thick x 3/4" wide tapered to 3/8") for a small increase in directional stability.
