National Aluminum Canoe Criteria: While the class was created for stock manufactured aluminum canoes, other stock recreational manufactured canoes are legal (wood, Rolex [ABS], plastic, etc.), but no Kevlar, carbon fiber or racing hulls are allowed. No modifications to the external hull are permissible, although seats, foot braces, bulkheads and decks may be modified or removed. However, any flotation removed from bulkheads, etc. must be replaced to provide 25 lbs. of buoyancy. No beaver canoes are legal.
Because many Alumacraft aluminum canoes have been modified to race the Texas Water Safari and other southern races, contestants must ensure that the external hull of their canoe has not been modified or pulled-in. The Race Chairman and the Technical Director of Inspection will be observing canoes and make the final determination as to the legality of any “stock” canoes. Any question concerning the legality of any canoe can be directed to Bob Spain at firstname.lastname@example.org or Tave Lamperez at email@example.com
