The Bob Special 15 foot Canoe is a specific canoe made to be suitable for people with regular trigger points or with fibromyalgia. The lightweight canoe is stable due to its larger than normal width, and the hull shape is optimized for performance resulting in a canoe that is fast. This version is based on the Chestnut original with some improvements to increase speed and sea worthiness. It is ideally suited as a tandem day-tripper yet large enough for a weekend canoe trip. A good way to avoid getting new trigger points is simply by living an active lifestyle.
