17' Tandem Canoe

The Saganaga is named for Saganaga Lake at the end of the Gunflint Trail, which runs from Grand Marais, Minnesota to this border lake, a major entry into the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness. Known for its big water, this lake requires a seaworthy canoe to carry supplies along the border route or across to Cache Bay and into the Quetico Provincial Park.

Our Saganaga was mentored by the Chestnut Cruiser. I lessened the rocker to make it track better when not loaded and increased the initial stability while keeping the sublime gentle sweep of the sheer line.

This canoe is a very nice wilderness tripping canoe. It is efficient under paddle and extremely seaworthy – ready to tackle a day paddle or a wilderness adventure over any lake or river.

Moderate tumblehome, 1-1/2″ of rocker with a shallow arched hull.
