Royalex® ABS Material
Steve Robinson, Alaska
"...Over the years, my Royalex® canoe has floated lakes and class IV white-water, been dragged over portages, abandoned in rock gardens, and ignored in the off-season. The closest it's been to a replacement skin is adding skid plates.
I no longer even carry duct tape on bush trips... I'll let my Royalex boat sit in the yard all year and spend my free time reflecting on all those good memories."

Martin L. Rand, Washington
"...My solo canoe trip on the Upper Blackwater River in Canada started at the headwaters where the river was no more than six inches deep and five feet wide and ended in a river as big as our Green River. I placed a great deal of trust in my Ouzel 15-8, and it never let me down. I paddled, lined, portaged, and dragged through all kinds of conditions. Several times I was sure I had done severe damage only to find a scratch or small depression. I am sure a canoe not made of Royalex® would have been put out of commission... I was pleased with its maneuverability, and even 17 miles of headwinds and whitecaps could not slow me with the use of a makeshift kayak paddle... My Ouzel proved to be a good wilderness companion..."

Jon Barlow, Montana
"...Over ten years ago, a group of us from Montana bought several 15'8" Ouzels. We outfitted them for whitewater and put them through the paces on swollen creeks and rivers in Idaho and Montana. Ten years later, the same boats are being used to transport the family on flatwater and to paddle local creeks in flood...
The Ouzel has proven itself to be a versatile, stable, predictable, durable and fun boat to paddle...".
