Fishing has always been a passion of mine, and I love looking for rivers and lakes where I could take my canoe out and relax. When I first started out, I did not know what to expect. I got a second-hand wooden canoe from one of my old friends and it was a terrible thing because I was forced to carry it with a wagon or rent out a bigger vehicle just to transport the damned thing. A couple of months ago, I decided to scrap the wooden canoe and went for a more practical purchase: an inflatable canoe.
One of the canoes that caught my eyes is the Sevylor Inflatable Colorado Hunting and Fishing Canoe, 2-Person. Now, I had no idea on the price range on these inflatable watercrafts, so I immediately assumed that it was a steal. Apparently, the Sevylor Inflatable Colorado Hunting and Fishing Canoe, 2-Person is a little bit too expensive than most of its competitors, but for its features, every penny is worth it. The canoe has a typical 10ft x 3ft measurement with a weight capacity of 500lbs. If you want a more large canoe, you can go for the 12-footers.
The quality of the Sevylor Inflatable Colorado Hunting and Fishing Canoe, 2-Person is far superior to the other inflatable canoes in the market. This one is made from sturdy 18-gauge PVC construction with a 420D nylon cover and reinforced fabric material on its bottom. It also has directional strakes for easy steering and manoeuvring. The canoe is also designed with raised bow and stern, so it tracks fairly well. What I like about the boat is that it tracks well, even with more than 300lbs loaded. I weigh at around 200lbs and my gear close to 100lbs, but I never encountered any steering or tracking problems yet.

The Sevylor Inflatable Colorado Hunting and Fishing Canoe, 2-Person can also be used for river trekking, though I would advise you not to use it on rapids. This canoe also does not miss out on comfort because it has two elevated bucket seats with back pads and a separate storage area. I also do not find any issues with the stability of the boat, so that is also a plus on my end. All in all, the Sevylor Inflatable Colorado Hunting and Fishing Canoe, 2-Person is a great starter purchase for fishermen and river trekkers, as long as you have the cash to shell out.
