Customer Reviews for Sevylor Sevylor 2-Person Colorado Canoe

Sevylor Sevylor 2-Person Colorado Canoe

Start your outdoor adventure on the water with the Sevylor Colorado Canoe. This canoe combines the stability, maneuverability and sea worthiness of a kayak with comfort, looks and styling of the traditional North American canoe. With a raised bow and stern, this 2-person canoe is as close in shape, comfort and styling to the traditional North American Indian canoe as an inflatable boat will ever get. Its 18 gauge PVC construction, 420 denier nylon cover and durable reinforced bottom fabric makes it very rugged and rigid. It features two elevated bucket seats with storage compartments to keep your things dry when you're out on the water. It's great for taking leisurely rides on the water or you can also fish off of it. The Sevylor Colorado Canoe must be inflated before using.

Review 1 for Sevylor 2-Person Colorado Canoe

Solo Boundary Water tripping

An excellent boat. Don't count on speed, but depend on it's stability. In high winds you may experience being blown a tad, but you won't tip like a standard canoe. In fact, you can hang your legs over and rock the boat back and forth and still not tip. You have to bring a pump with you while on the water. If you get lost nearing evening, as the temperature cools the air chambers shrink and you'll be real low in the water. You can pump air in it while on the water. In hot sun, just the opposite, splashing cool water on the pontoons helps keep them from getting too inflated, and though I can't properly recommend this, if you're real careful, REAL CAREFUL, you can allow air out through the valve by HOLDING TIGHT the valve cover and unscrewing it just enough to get a slow hissing release of air. Again, not an official recommendation, but I've done it. In response to the other review about paddling, the key to making paddling easier is to use a kayak paddle. You get quicker response to your own paddling, left side right side etc. Again, only estimate your speed solo paddling at half of that of a regular canoe. But the stability is awesome. The bottom is tough, you can stand up over a bed of jagged rocks if you have to. If you're getting old or are physically challenged, this boat is hard to get in and out of. The smaller similar model the Sevylor Rio IS intended for solo (I'm a big man and I did 3 weeks on one of those in the Boundary Waters, caught a lot of fish), but this boat also can be used solo. In fact, you have a little more storage space, so distribute your weight to keep the boat level.
Regarding fishing out of these, I did, but one time I made the mistake of flopping a very large northern pike up on the pontoon and either the lure's hook or the fish's teeth punctured a pontoon, about a pin sized hole, so by the time I reached the bank crossing a small lake I was beginning to take in a little water. You must bring a patch kit with you. They work well. Also this boat and the Rio navigate tight spots really well, the only drawback would be in very high winds, which you want to avoid if possible, but at least you have stability from tipping. At night when camping, as always with an inflatable, bring up and away from the water's edge, away from a campfire (duh), etc. Excellent boat.

Review 2 for Sevylor 2-Person Colorado Canoe

Excellent Inflatable !

Bought this canoe to take leisurely floats on our local lake. It is made of superb quality and construction. Very solid and is stable in the water. It performs very well - easy to paddle and keep straight with two persons paddling. It is more difficult with a single paddler - may need an extra skeg.
It does take a good pump to get it inflated fully - you want to get it pressurized properly so it is firm. It is also substantial in weight - be prepared for the effort needed to move it into and out of the water - especially after it has been in the water and gets wet.
Highly recommend this product.
