Also, the center thwart was not heavy duty enough for me and started to come apart at the ends so I replaced it with my own piece of wood which might have added a pound to the total weight of the canoe but was surely worth it. The price is quite good, I think, for the quality of this canoe. It's a blast to take it out on a windy lake if you don't mind getting a little wet. Very stable and maneuverable, I love it.
It is a versatile solo pack canoe made of an economical and tough proprietary lay up of polyester cloth and fiberglass.
The wood trim is gorgeous, and the canoe can be purchased brand new, in almost any color you want, for less than $400!
