Old Town Canoe
Penobscot 17 Royalex
An excellent design for paddling ease and quickness with the muscle to handle 1,150 pounds of paddlers and gear. Flat water or fast water, this is a confident choice for lake touring enthusiasts and down-river racers. The Old Town Canoe Penobscot 17 weighs in at an easily transportable 65 lbs. That's high performance out of the water, and a feature not lost on anyone who's shouldered a canoe over long portages. If you want a durable canoe that's very good on flat water and capable in many other conditions, the Penobscot 17 will serve you well.

I wish my parents had this boat instead of the "Aluminium Battleship" when I was a kid. This is a great boat for parents to paddle while the little ones sit in the middle. It's quick, manoeuvrable, and has sides that are not so tall as too impede your passengers view.
