I have owned three of these Coleman Ram-X canoes. Two of them were 15 footers and the other was a 13 footer. I loved them all, they take a beating and keep on going, easy to repair if you happen to damage one. I had mine in lakes, streams and the Susquehanna River in Harrisburg, PA. they are not that hard to paddle and you can make an outrigger system for them and can go damn near anywhere with them. I did alot of fishing in mine and just taking them down to the local stream to cool off on a hot day was fun. i am currently looking for another one.
