Pack Boats

Pack boats were developed over 150 years ago as short, fairly wide and very lightweight craft designed to be very maneuverable and easy to portage.  They have an open hull, generally a low seating position (close or on the bottom of the hull), foot rest and are used with a double bladed paddle  Originally designed for backwoods paddling in the Adirondacks, they’ve evolved with additional, sleeker hull shapes now available.  Pack boats can be used for flat to moderate water lake and river paddling.  And don’t underestimate them - a pack boat was recently used to solo through paddle the 740 mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail. 

Pack boats are ideal for paddlers who want the “drop in the gear, step in and go" open feeling of canoeing, but want the convenience of using a double bladed paddle, the additional stability from the low seating position and the ability to easily bring the family boat dog (or small child) along for the ride.
