What kind? Aluminum? How long? How much does it weigh?
What kind of paddles did you get?
Always interested when people get canoes.
For roughly 20 years I’ve owned a feather weight 17’ aluminum. It’s only 57 pounds. I don’t even know if you can buy them like that anymore. It has no flotation built in (part of the whole keeping the weight really low thing), so if it swamps, it’s going down (no messing around in this canoe!), and I once watched the wind pick it up and blow it end over end out into the lake from where we had it on shore. Unfortunately, I have nowhere to keep it in my current apartment, so it’s been hanging up, unused, in my sister and BIL’s garage for 3 years now.
For paddles, I have a couple of regular ones for other people, but I have a custom made bent paddle for myself. Something like this one, but mine was made by a guy in Wisconsin. For those who don’t know, the bend goes forward so that when you’re at greatest pull, it is straight up and down in the water.
