What happens when you take a great boat and make it better? The Echoee! This has been my favourite hull for many years for river running, teaching and racing. The Echoee is the classic Ocoee design in a composite lay up, making for a stiff, light, durable and incredibly responsive boat!
The lay up is a composite of carbon, kevlar, s-glass and innegra with extra reinforcement in the chines and bow/stern and the bottom is stiffened to stop oil-canning. At 26lbs it’s a feather on the water, making it a performance machine. The outfitting is by Mikey.
“It’s wonderful! The boat is the fastest I’ve ever paddled with really great glide. It has excellent primary and secondary stability and behaved predictably. It was very dry, even when punching small holes. The lightness was appreciated.”
Weight of Raw Hull 18 lbs
Weight with gunnels + outfitting 26 lbs
