The 12' model is currently the only model we have in production for the carry lite. We can build smaller than 12' but it is not recommended for an adult weighting over 200lbs. This is the perfect boat for retreiving ducks when hunting out of the boat. There is a saying in the army, "ounces equal pounds and pounds equal pain". This holds true for anyone hauling around a pirogue in a boat as well. This ultra light design at 43lbs is easy to handle and won’t take up much room in the boat. These pirogues draft a little deeper in the water, but the nose will remain out of the water even with extra weight in them i.e. 5 dozen decoys. That being said, when outfitted with a normal load they can do everything the standard model can do, it just takes a little more finesse and they are not as fast. It is the only pirogue we will use when hunting out of the boat blind where weight is critical for traveling. This pirogue is not intended for long distance travel with alot of gear although it can be done if the weight is dispursed appropriately. It can handle up to 280lbs of weight.
