    Sold the canoe...purchased a kayak

    Well, I didn't foresee the loading problems of the heavier/longer canoe. It became more of an event to get it on and off of my Civic, than I had antisipated. :smiley_chinrub: Anyway, as it turns out, a guy in WV purchased my canoe for what I'd paid for it. I met him half way and on the way...

    How much motor and battery, for a canoe?

    I just purchased an Old Town Saranac 146 XT canoe and it's 14' 6" and 79 lbs. I'm thinking that more motor means more battery...both of which are more money. I used to have a 17' aluminum canoe that I used a 23 lb. thrust motor on and it did pretty good. I'd say a 30 lb. or 40 lb. thrust...

    Help me purchase a canoe or kayak!

    I'm in the market for a canoe or kayak for fishing on small lakes and ponds. I want something that's stable, tracks straight and is less than $800. :) I've looked at several brands of canoes and the only one that I've found that has a ribbed bottom that would/could make it track as straight...

    Kayak paddle for a canoe?

    I've owned both kayaks and canoes and enjoyed both for different reasons. I like the use of the double ended kayak paddles and they make sense in their use for that type of boat. However, I was thinking of using a kayak paddle for a canoe. It would seem to make the steering more simple in...

    My Canoe

    I though that I would start this thread off right, and with pictures! Well, it's technically not "my canoe" but someday it will be. My grandfather built this redwood canoe by hand in the 80s and then when he passed, my mother got it. Since then, it has been registered in Ohio and mom and...
