My father purchased a 17 foot aluminum Lowe canoe used in the early 1990's. This was my first introduction to paddle sports. This canoe has held up very well, is plenty stable and tracks well. The boat is still in use today and will continue to stand the test of time. The only drawback with the canoe is that it is heavy compared to what is on the market today.

I purchased this aluminum Lowe Line canoe used in 1972 for $250 dollars -which was quite a sum for us as a newly married couple with a small child. It has been fantastic! I still use it often. Although it is a bit heavy now (because of my age. This canoe has been wonderful and carried me and many others hundreds of miles. It has scratches and some small dents, but even after all these years and miles it still does not leak! It has been one of the best bargains I have every purchased in my entire life. $250 divided by 42 (years) equals $5.95 per year (or about $0.42 per month!) proves it has been fantastic!! I am ready for any upgrade with a new canoe or kayak!!!
