I bought my canoe 4 years ago to fish the lakes north of Tulsa Oklahoma with my 7 yr old son. He is now 11 and we were looking at "upgrading" to a tracker bass boat to gain more space, when my son suggested we just buy a second canoe.. We have both stood and fished in this boat at the same time. When I bought it, I bought the out rigger kit as well. We used it about 2 times, The boat is so stable, they were just in the way. I think my boy was right we will just buy another canoe....more mobile than the bass boat, and I will not be boat poor.
My only issue with it is the way the thwarts are spaced. Neither one is near the natural center of balance and can not be reached when trying to lift it onto my Jeep. I'm hoping to find a remedy for this, maybe a clamp-on yoke or something.
Otherwise, it's going to be a great canoe and a purchase well worth it.
Just took out our newly purchased 14 foot Sportspal and love it. We have teenage grandkids and they hopped into the lake to swim and can climb back in with no problem. This canoe is so stable and glides along with little effort. My wife and I are in our 60s and can load and unload on the roof rack of our Jeep Liberty easily. This 14 foot is only 55 lbs so I have loaded it by myself. I have the Thule Canoe Portage Carrier mounts on the cross bars so they take some shifting around easier with two people. Love this canoe! there are youtube videos you can check out. I am so glad I made this choice.
This ships by tractor trailer and is packaged very well enclosed completely in a box. Some carriers wanted to make you come to their terminal to pick up but I ordered mine from Molner Outdoor and they ship to your home. It comes with a statement of origin to get it registered if your state requires it.
