Before going onto broader discussions, a formal introduction to Canoes must be put forward. A text book definition of Canoe would be a medium to light weight boat like watercraft with pointy ends which is paddled by seated or kneeling individuals in the direction of the transit. They are prepared as dugouts with open tops and are used for travelling, touring and for recreational sports and adventures. Canoes derive their name from Caribbean word ‘kenu’ meaning dugout and also owe its influences to the Spanish word ‘canoa’.
Until the mid 19th century, Canoes were a means used for transportation and also for exploring and engaging in trade and commerce. However, now it has its utility in adventure sports and other recreational purposes like camping and touring. In fact, the classification of the different types of canoes is made on the simple basis of their utility and usage. Generally speaking, canoes are manufactured with the design to fit one person, or two persons. But, customized canoes can be prepared and designed in order to fit in more people. Canoes can be used in many terrains and waters depending upon the specifications and features that one encompasses in it.
However, one thing is of utmost importance and thus must be kept in mind before going out to canoeing with our friends and family. Safety and adequate precautions are an absolute prerequisite as far as canoeing goes. The last thing that we want is that our canoe capsizes or overturns midway or in deeper parts of the waters. Moreover, fooling around or manipulating with water safety can prove to be extremely detrimental especially in rough terrains and may even be a cause of fatality if not properly taken care of. Thus to be on the safe side, the consideration for a canoe stabilizer kit is absolutely crucial. A stabilizer kit attached to a canoe or a kayak provides a great deal of stability, balance and helps the canoe to leverage more easily. Canoe stabilizers are quite simple and universal as far as usage and manipulating goes and have a very catchy design to suit the light weight experience.
A Spring Creek Canoe Stabilizer Package comes with four components:
- Floats to stabilize the Canoe
- A Universal Receiver
- Telescopic Arms
- A set of Clamps
The floats that stabilize the canoe are essentially hydrodynamic in nature and design with added lubrications that renders allowance for the minimal drags and paddling and guides the canoe swiftly and efficiently in the gushing water. The Universal Receiver, on the other hand, is deemed as a combination with the stabilizer floats, rowing kits and sailing for better performance. The telescopic arms are designed to suit all types of kayaks and canoes, cutting across all differences and can be manipulated as per requirement for a more stable and balanced experience. Finally, the set of canoeing clamps are crucial for fixation of the stabilizing floats in place without causing any damage to the canoe. Having these in place makes a Canoeing experience smooth, memorable and most importantly safe.
