Yesterday I won a 12 ft radisson canoe in a raffle, I was very excited until I saw it. It appears to be made especially for hunting and/or fishing??? I don't think my family of three can safely fit in it and canoe? I have not yet told my husband . I have it hidden from him.....yes, I know thats mean....I wanted to do some homework first....I know he would enjoy using it for hunting/fishing, but it would be nice to have something the whole family can enjoy. We have an 8 year old son, who is a little timid of boats, and this one seems a bit low to the water. I can't find much for the uses of the canoe on line, other than the description of how its made. Question..Can this boat be used safely for regular canoeing, i.e., floating down rivers with the three of us, or should I sell it and buy a "family" type canoe? We like canoeing, but as of thus far, have only rented canoes while on vacations. I think we would really like to own a canoe to travel the rivers and streams around our home. Are these good canoes or does any one have any suggestions about a good canoe to get for the "whole family" to enjoy. We do all enjoy fishing and/hunting, can you safely fish/hunt from "regular" canoes? Thanks for any input.
