Honukai - twoman canoe


Honukai is Hawaiian for Sea Turtle. This two-person canoe model was adapted from our first generation OC1. The body style is longer and has more volume so that it can accommodate two people easily and with more speed than the OC1. The wide body styling and large ama make the boat very stable for beginner paddlers.

    Construction

    Standard fiberglass materials and polyester resin are used in the construction of the canoe, ama, and rudder.  The "screw-on" iako are made of aircraft grade aluminum tubing. A two-inch stringer of closed cell foam runs the length of the boat and is bound to the hull and deck for strength and flotation. The fittings are stainless steel and aluminum. The standard seats are now the gray, closed cell foam design and adjust to your seating position via Velcro. Steering is from the rear seating position only.
