Steve Killing designed this big Freedom canoe for those who loved the feel of the 17, but simply needed to carry a bigger load. Whether it's more people, bigger people or more packs for an extended wilderness trip, they will fit. The length, beam and freeboard have been increased with only subtle changes to the hull shape. The resulting stability is high. With slightly more rocker than many modern canoes, the Freedom series has gained back the turning ability found in traditional canoe shapes, without sacrificing the speed of the modern hull.
