    2 - The length, combined with very moderate rocker, gives the E68 excellent tracking while on an even keel.

    background information

    3 - The E68 has a low enough initial stability to allow deliberate "edging" and thus provides great nimbleness in turns when required.

    background information

    42 US-lbs (PVC hull material) -- 53 US-lbs (Hypalon hull material)

    One person alone can easily handle this low weight. The disassembled and packed E68 fits into a single bag. You can readily lift the assembled boat off or onto a car roof rack.

    max. Payload:
    440 US-lbs

    Even extended trips (and even if you are not in the habit of packing lightly!) are possible due to this generous payload.

    Dimensions of packed boat:
    51 x 14 x 10 inch
