The Alumacraft CO-17 Camper canoe is a specialty canoe that provides a little assistance to your paddling via its motor. This isn’t a great canoe for someone who enjoys longer paddling trips. The Alumacraft CO-17 Camper canoe is ideal for the occasional canoer who wishes for an easier paddling experience.
I would rate my review of the Alumacraft CO-17 Camper canoe as 3 out of 5. I enjoyed this canoe very much, and look forward to reviewing more canoes from Alumacraft.
During my review, I found the Alumacraft CO-17 Camper canoe to be surprisingly comfortable. I’m not a huge fan of powered personal watercraft, but they meshed the motor into this canoe’s design very nicely. I don’t quite consider anything with a motor a canoe, but for teetering on the edge, Alumacraft has done a wonderful job with the CO-17 Camper canoe. The only downfall is the overall width of the canoe. It’s so wide that you can experience stability problems when paddling rather than motoring.
