The Advanced Elements StraitEdge Canoe is designed for improved tracking performance over other inflatable canoes. Our unique bow and stern design incorporates aluminum rib forms, air bags and rigid panels in the side walls. This, combined with a durable outer skin, results in a hybrid canoe with unique paddling performance. The bow and stern have removable ribs made of high grade aluminum. When the chambers are inflated these ribs press against the outer cover and form a high performance bow and stern.

This is not for tall people. My wife and I are both 5 foot mid range. IF you are short, this canoe will work great with some small adjustments. First, there are four loops in the back, get some good marine rope and tighten the back end up. (Makes it easier to steer and doesn't flop so much) Second, I made a pvc keel that fits on the bottom of the canoe, slides into the aluminum rib pouches. I think they sell a keel for their kayaks, you'd have to find a similar size and hope it fits the canoe. My wife and I love the portability of it, buy the manual pump with the dial, an electric pump usually doesn't have enough "umph" to fill up the canoe properly.
