Intro: Outrigger Canoes
Here are a few conversions from a plain old canoe into an outrigger canoe stable enough for sailing. We use Expandacraft modular hulls which come in 4 foot sections with other components to fit up to almost any canoe or kayak.
Simply bolt the Expandacraft outrigger kit to a canoe and presto, you have a stable boat for adventure. If you have a 12 to 14 foot canoe you should use the 12'9 Expandacraft outrigger kit. A 16 to 18 foot canoe would require a 16'9 Expandacraft kit if you want to maximize the space and increase the volume as much as you can.
