I have an older Grumman Sport Canoe. The model with two sets of oar locks. It's kind of a hybrid between a square back canoe and small boat. I run it with either a 2 hp or 6 hp two stroke outboard. The two horse will move it at hull speed and the 6hp will make it plane but does require a foil on the anticavitation plate to make it plane. It's a very versatile boat for what I use it for which is fishing shallow creeks off the ICW in Florida. The boat poles or paddles easily once I reach my fishing locations. It's light enough to transport in the back of a pick up with a bed extender and tie downs. I can handle it alone but two people make it a whole lot easier. This boat is very popular with duck hunters.

aluminum hull, handles good for a 17ft canoe, plenty of room, good stability, and I'm pretty sure it is going to last forever.

I picked up a well used but perfectly usable 15' Grumman Sport a few weeks ago. I bought it strictly to fish out of in local lakes and rivers, I harbor no illusions of actually paddling it.
Today my fiancee and I hit the lake with it. I must say I'm impressed. It moves very well with a 40# thrust trolling motor on the stern. It was quite windy today and the motor moved the boat easily. The only downside that I see to the boat is that the stern seating position is pretty short. That makes for an awkward reach around to run the trolling motor.

I have owned a 15ft Grumman sport boat for 5 years now and found that it is the most stable canoe that I have ever used, the first time I had it on the river I was with a friend of mine and we were fishing one morning, John my friend went to throw the anchor out and he slipped and fell down on the right front side of the canoe, to my amazement we did not wind up in the drink, when he fell I leaned to the left and the canoe did not tip over because of the wide beam that it has, I am really pleased with this canoe for safety and its durability, it by far is the best canoe on the market.
