Crawdad 12x33
Untitled Document


Crawdad 12-33

Crawdads (also known Crawfish, Crayfish, and Freshwater Lobsters) are the irresistible food for many birds, fish and humans!

Inspired by the Gheenoe and River Hawk brand boats, our Crawdad is designed to be a small but stable fishing canoe.


Overall Dimensions

12' x 33"
3.7 m x 838 mm

Heights: Bow, Mid, Stern

14.5", 11", 13.5"
368, 279, 343
Rocker: Fore and Aft
1.5", 3/4"

Estimated hull weight*
40-55 lbs.
18-25 k
Max Recommend load on board

*Hull weight will depend on the quality of materials selected and skill of the builder.

Stability and easy paddling were the primary design attributes. While not as fast as a double-end canoe of similar size, the Crawdad will move well through the water and can accommodate a trolling motor.
