It's a very nice canoe. It's too cold to use it as of yet, but we will as soon as the weather warms up. One thing I wanted to mention was the shipping of the canoe. It was loosely wrapped in bubble wrap, and therefore there were several scratches and dents in the canoe.

    Canoe just arrived, packed very well. As noted it is a second, which in my case is a small dent, otherwise perfect shape. I would be writing this from the lake if it were warm enough! Great deal, highly recommend.

    I have tripped all over Ontario Canada with all kinds of canoes- whitewater to flatwater

    This boat is tough and a great boat
    its not the best at anything but good at everything

    Its heavy with the crosslink polyethylene plastic compared to royalex but is way tougher. at 85 pounds you dont want to carry this too far by yourself - but it can be done - its just makes portaging a chore

    a flat wide bottom boat with little rocker, but still can handle moderate whitewater. Lots of volume for tripping. stable
    • Best Uses: Day Trips, Tripping

    • Pros: Stable, TOUGH

    We use the boat for lake use. If the water's choppy though you have to be careful. The boat's a little heavy, but doable. If it's anything, it's rugged. This boat will take a beating.
    • Best Uses: Day Trips, Flat Waters
    • Cons: Heavy, Unstable
    • Describe Yourself: Casual/ Recreational
    • Pros: Comfortable

About Old Town

Old Town canoes and kayaks have balanced tradition and technology throughout Old Town Canoes' 100 year history. Old Town canoes built their first Old Town canoe in 1898 using wood-and-canvas canoe construction, a more durable, lower maintenance improvement on the Native American birch bark canoe. Old Town kayaks in canvas and wood were introduced in the 1940s, and made kayaking fun and easy for a new breed of outdoor enthusiasts. In the 1950s and 1960s, Old Town canoes pioneered the use of fiberglass for Old Town canoes, and Old Town canoes and kayaks continue innovation into the 21st century, advancing the art of paddling through better designs and lighter, more durable materials, like today's three-layer polyethylene and three-layer Superlinear. Old Town Canoe continues to look ahead, while still keeping one eye on the past for inspiration from the best of classic boat-building traditions. There are Old Town canoes and kayaks designed for family canoeing, recreation and fitness paddling, fishing canoes and kayaks, whitewater, touring and camping. Whatever water you travel, there is an Old Town canoe or kayak ready to help you make the most of every trip.
