Our new David Yost - designed tandem debuted at the 2009 Adirondack Canoe Classic. Rock-solid stability and plenty of forward speed and efficiency - DY hallmarks - are on display.
Some experienced paddlers have told us the Ohneka is the fastest tandem they've ever been in. In fact, with the right propulsion, it can keep up with our Shadow, cruising at over 6 miles per hour. Accelerated rocker in the last three feet of the bow allow the boat to turn on a dime - in its own length if you lean it a bit. It'll also carve up narrow twisties like Brown's Tract and Stony Creek with little turning effort involve, yet it tracks true on big water and in wind and waves. "S" gunwales significantly shorten the paddlers' vertical reach to water, helping the boat track and allowing the use of shorter, lighter paddles.
