A modern efficient tripping canoe:

• Length 17'
• Maximum beam 33.4"
• Beam waterline 31.75"
• Beam gunnel 32.5"
• Bow height 19.25"
• Centre depth 13.25"

• Displacement 420 lbs.
• Wetted surface 30.15 sq.ft.
• Weight to immerse 143.8 lb/in
• Prismatic coefficient 0.567

The Freedom 17 features an asymmetrical hull with a slim bow, a maximum beam just aft of the middle and filled out stern sections to reduce the resistance. The gently rockered profile lets the boat turn with ease. Because of the slight tumblehome this canoe is a wonderful solo boat, but most of the time it can be found heading off on canoe trips with two avid canoeists on board. A fast responsive tripping canoe that's also easy to build.
