SOFi is a skin-on-frame canoe that has been designed for paddling on lakes solo or with two persons. The V-shaped hull and the slight rocker give the canoe a good directional stability, also when paddled solo.  Furthermore, SOFi is well suited for trips with a lot of load due to its high freeboard. The gunnels are designed low to keep the wind-exposed surfaces as small as possible. A little tumblehome helps the paddler doing his strokes.
