If you got knowledge in those areas let me know. Thanks
Actually stable is my major requirement in a canoe! I couldn't bear to lose my precious fishing tackle in a flip. Not sure what a skag is?

There are some sleek vessels plying the Restigouche river that I admire and I think would be an excellent idea for future retirement plans. these canoes are usually 22 to 28 feet long and they draw very little water, even just a few inches is enough to make it up river over sand bars etc in low water. They can be pricy though 2 to 5 thousand dollars.
