The Champlain High-ender, built by the Peterborough Canoe Company, was one of their most popular designs. Originally built in cedar/canvas, it appeared in their final catalogue of 1961. The Champlain Lowender, with less height in the ends, was built on the same mold. A good traditional style general purpose recreational canoe. Features a moderate displacement, soft bilge and moderate rocker - paddles well in the 'heeled over' position. Ideal for recreational paddling (solo or tandem) and light tripping.
