The OC-4 provides a lot of versatility for paddlers. An excellent surfing and training canoe, the
Northbeach OC-4 is perfect for when only four of your crew of
six turns out to practice. The OC-4 is both light and easy to
maneuver. A drop skeg helps the novice keep a straight course.
The canoe’s construction is very technologically advanced
with a pair of fully infused halves (left and right) being joined
in the mold. This combines both weight savings and time savings
to produce a hull that is both extremely light and is still affordable.
The hull’s shape has a strong sectional change through its
length. The bow runs deep and narrow with a parabolic cross section
allowing room above the waterline for the paddlers. Chines emerge
amidships and harden as they travel aft giving the canoe a very
wide, flat surfing stern.
Having a short waterline, this canoe reacts to steering faster
than you ever thought possible. A retractable skeg that can be
operated by the steersman on-the-fly lets the amount of tracking
and amount of maneuverability be fine-tuned.
