Canoe-Weight of-Will a dugout canoe, fourteen feet long, twenty-two inches amidships, twelve inches deep and weighing one hundred and twenty-five pounds paddle as easily as a canoe of the same size, weighting only sixty pounds?
It would depend on the model, shape, the load, etc. Of course, the lighter the boat, the faster it is, if the model is the same, because more weight must be driven through the water. The heavier the boat, the deeper it sinks, the more water it displaces-crowd out.
