From that link:
We now offer 4 models built here at our main facility. Two 120 pound Gheenoe's, the 13' and 15'4" models, which are light enough to easily be put on top of a car or in the back of a truck.
They apparently have different definitions of the words "light" and "easily" than I do. That is exactly twice what my 14' fiberglass Mad River Winooski weighs (if they are telling the truth and it's not actually heavier). And still much heavier than my 18' canoe which is about 80 pounds.

HTRN, I would tell you that you are an evil fucker, but you probably get that a lot ~ Netpackrat

Describing what HTRN does as "antics" is like describing the wreck of the Titanic as "a minor boating incident" ~ First Shirt

It is technically a Kayak, but the NuCanoe is my small-water fishing boat of choice. It's extremely hard to tip (You can paddle standing up if you want, and I almost always dangle my legs off the side). It's been a little bit (currently it's stored with my parents) but I'm pretty sure you can mount an electric motor or a sail.

I also have a Radisson Canoe which is VERY light, so easy to be loaded by one person. They have pointed backs, which you can mount a side motor on, and square backs, with a transom built in for mounting a rear motor. They are actually a fair amount "tippier" than the nucanoe but I have no big complaints with either.
