"We love our Nucanoe! Took the kids out to Lake Padden on Sunday and Julian caught this sweet 14" Rainbow trout. This boat is so stable that I can take my kids out in it without any worries about tipping--even when my rowdy 6 yr old forgets he's in a small boat and stands up/moves around. You can't do that in a regular canoe. Plus I can load/unload it myself out of the pickup truck, so can get out fishing with just the kids and me. This boat was truly made for taking kids fishing."
