The W is a great boat for kayaking and kayak fishing, but it’s also easy to paddle with single-blade (canoe) paddles – both in solo and tandem modes.
The 9 ft long, two-pieces, dual blade Mohawk paddle we offer can be turned into two canoe paddles using the T-grip kit: Each of the two canoe paddles is good for canoeing in the lower positions (Riding, Sitting and Kneeling) and long enough for paddling standing up, as shown in this picture:
Paddling with a canoe paddle is fun, and it can be easier than kayaking when there are two paddlers in the cockpit.
The W tracks better than canoes, and it is stabler than canoes its size, which makes it easy to use in canoeing applications – even for small children:
When it comes to fishing, a short, single blade paddle offers the advantage that you can simply drop it in the cockpit as soon as you need to grab a fishing rod that’s showing signs of action… -You don’t even have to find paddle holders.
Another advantage that a canoe paddle offers is when you need to paddle through areas with many low hanging branches that could make handling a kayak paddle more difficult.
