The TC 16 is the best inflatable canoe I have seen. It packs into my 23 ft Wennebago motor home along with all the gear I need. I tested it at Flamingo in Everglades National Park after Hurricane Irma left debris and obstacles. I inflated with the manual pump, set it on a light collapsible dolly with an ice chest, 3 tackle bags, 4 rods, the pump, patch kit, 2 paddles and a foam paddling block, GPS/Hand Held Marine two way radio and big spray.

The wind was 20 mph and in those conditions, the area can be the harshest environment in the US.

I wheeled the loaded canoe 1/8 of a mile, drug it through Mangrove mud to launch and fished mangrove islands and caught Sea Trout.

The canoe handled perfectly while I sat on my knees resting my rear on the paddle block.

The seats were useless because the proper way to paddle a canoe is on your knees not on a seat. The seats do not attach well, move around and only allow for ameture paddling. Canoe is a five stars but the seats are 2 Stars. Great Canoe.

It's been a great canoe. We took it on a 12 day, 185 mile float down the Yellowstone River. It handled very well and didn't have any issues with it (very robust). The river was up higher than usual so there some nice class II and a few class III rapids to go through. The boat performed very well. The only complaint I have is the weight of the hull. Its listed as being 60 lbs on the website but mine weighs 74 lbs with the cover (without the seats or fin). 70 lbs is the limit for a normal check bag for airlines so it makes it quite expensive to travel with by air. Prior to the next trip I will see if there is any way of shedding some weight.

TC16 models 2018 and newer weigh 60 lbs. Identifiable by the gray color versus the prior green model that weighed 70 lbs.

I bought this so it could fit in our RV and take it with us, and also use around our home on the lakes. Overall I have been happy with the boat but do have some issues with the seats being comfortable.

My wife Bonnie and I love the TC16 canoe and plan on using it a lot this summer and fall in the lakes and rivers of Oregon. I was impressed with the return policy in that the first canoe we received have a defect that showed up when we had the canoe for 5 months and I called and sent pictures of the defect and your staff determined that it was a manufacturing error and after following your instructions was able to have it replaced free of any charges. I have not been able to take the new canoe out yet but am anxious to do so soon. Thank your staff for all their help with our questions.
