A canoe is a type of boat that is characterized by an elongated shape. They are usually made from wood and designed so that they can be paddled with one or two people sitting in the center. Historically, canoes have been used for transportation, as well as being used to explore the area around them. The word ‘canoe’ comes from the Carib language meaning “the dugout tree trunk.”
Canoes are used for a variety of purposes, including transportation, hunting and fishing, exploration, or just leisure activities. Canoes can be made from different materials such as wood (traditional), aluminum/fiberglass, plastic ring locks with fabric covering the outside which is then dipped in epoxy resin; some people have even built their own canoe out of PVC pipes!
A canoes length is about 12 feet long. It would be approximately .36 meters to the nearest meter. The longest “canoe” was 32 feet and belonged to explorer David Thompson who named it Big Boat when he arrived at Columbia River’s mouth on September 17th 1897. This boat measured out at roughly one hundred twenty six centimeters or eleven point two three nine inches if you’re in America, which is around thirty five point 28 sixteen millimeters (35mm). That makes for an epic canoe!
The average length of a kayak-type open-top boat like a canoe measures around twelve feet long; however, the longest recorded “canoe” belongs to explorer David Thompson, measuring out at 119 cm, which is approximately three and a half feet.

The record for the world’s smallest canoes goes to two Canadian brothers who found ways in 2008 that were able to make their boats – complete with seats – measure just four inches wide by fourteen inches high! These miniature crafts are made from balsa wood or cedar trees.
