Current Plastic C2 in production. Bow paddler should not be over 160 lbs, stern over 200 lbs. Very comfortable, stable boat. There are at least 2 or 3 in North America.
User Comment:
A short plastic C2 from Noah! This is a prototype of the Noah Canoah America C2, It is identical with the current production model (in production since 3 years). I do not think that Vladimir designed it himself, he mentioned in an e-mail that he actually bought it from someone else. Accordin to Martin Vanha (Noah's owner's brother) this is a rare beast over here he says only 3 or 4 made it to those shores. The boat is very short for a C2, 10 ft 9 in, same length as a Dagger Cascade, but at 31 in, it is quite a bit wider, which will help stability. At 12.5 in it is also quite deep and the cockpit seems very comfy. The front cockpit is ~55 inches from the bow, the stern one about ~43 inches forward from the stern end (measured position is approximate position of the paddler. The cockpits are close together, 31 inches. The saddles are 8.5 inches tall. Cockpits are approximately egg shape and about 24 inches long and 21 inches wide. The boat is heavy, the hull seems to be built like a tank. The outfitting is a little loose needs some modifying. The boat looks interesting, if a bit narrow and maybe low volume in the bow, for a C2 at least. I cant wait to get out in it! According to Vladimir the bow paddler should weigh no more than about 155 to 160 lbs., while the stern paddler can be up to 200 lbs. The hull is a displacement hull with a flattish bottom and rounded chines. One interesting feature are three grooves that run the length of the bottom, they seem to serve the purpose of stiffening the bottom and, according to Martin Vanha, to improve tracking. It has a fair amount of rocker, and should, due to it's shortness and rocker perform very well on tight technical rivers and creeks. I am not sure about big water, but I'll see once I take it to the Ottawa river this summer :)- from the CForum (Martin) is managed by Adam Pearsall and Kenneth Sarzynski with graphic artwork by Sara Pearsall
