I have a 15' Aluminum canoe, made for Sears by Grumman.
It has only been in the water three or four times. No scratches.
Pointed on both ends. Very solid. I think I paid over $600. for it.
I've had it several years and it just sets.
Let me know if you're interested. You can have it for $400.
You can also have two paddles and two life jackets.
This one is called a lake canoe because it has a small (1") keel that runs from bow to stern. It is supposed to keep you from blowing sideways on a lake and strengthens the bottom. Usually a white water canoe has a rounded bottom for better maneuvering.
