  • Question “what is the max weight capacity for this canoe?”
    Asked on 8/3/2013 8:10:17 AM by Tyberious from Pittsburgh
    • Answer After checking with Wenonah, they do not have published max weight capacities. This is what they say on their web site. Many canoe makers publish specific weight capacities for their hulls.

      These are highly misleading for many reasons:

      1. Even if you know how much weight you've put into the canoe, water in the bilge
      rapidly increases the load by an unknown amount.
      2. If loaded anywhere near its claimed limit, a canoe may not be overloaded officially,
      but it will handle very poorly.
      3. Waves or strong current call for an increased safety margin, hence less load.
      4. Paddlers' skills play a major role in what weight a canoe can transport safely.

      We don't print specific figures. Rather we say our hulls have reserve capacity for their intended use.

      A Heron or Fisherman is for shorter day-trips. A Rogue, Adirondack, Aurora, Kingfisher, or Escapade will take two typical adults with moderate gear. A Spirit, Escape, Boundary Waters or Cascade is ment for two adults with lots of gear. The Minnesota II, and Champlain have a bit more capacity, while the Minnesota 3, and Itasca will carry three to four adults and lots of gear in most situations.

      If you're worried about the capacity of any model (made by us or by anyone), a published figure is not a reliable guide. Load the hull with the intended weight and test it. If the canoe is overloaded, a test will reveal it better than any published figure could.
