I have owned the Old Town Penobscot 17 for a number of years. This canoe is almost indestructible and very nice looking. It tracks very well, is quite fast and holds a lot of cargo for long trips. It is a very stable, forgiving and yet surprisingly easy to maneuver in white water.

Although the Penobscot isn't as light as some canoes, it isn't outrageous to portage either. It has enough oak to make it pretty and the cane seats are not only comfortable but quite easy to repair by yourself once you get the hang of it. I really love this boat and although I have several canoes, this one is my every-day boat as well as my main tripping canoe.
