Old Towne Canoe for sale

10 posts in this topic

Asking $200 for the canoe, it is a 16ft,76lb fiberglass canoe. I originally bought it last year from a friend. It needed some fixing up, so I repaired some cracks , and gave her a new paint job, dark green in color. I used it last year w/my 55lb thrust trolling motor, and it cruised through the water. Oh yeah, it comes w/the trolling motor mount. Sorry, I don't have any pictures. I will try to get some in the near future. You can reach me at 612-822-6194 and ask for Dan. I live in South Minneapolis, very close to Lake street and Nicollet ave.

Chow for now,

Dan

Nitrotmaxx, I don't have pictures yet. I am not willing to go down on price as I paid $175 for it last year and spent a good amount of time restoring it. I also paid $20 to get the trolling motor mount. Although, I don't have pictures yet, the cracks were on the railing and I fixed them using fiberglass sheets and the epoxy glue used to bind it together. I did three layers of fiberglass sheets, and plenty of sanding in between to smooth it all out. It is the same thickness as the rest of the canoe. Sorry to be so blunt about the price, but I spent too much time on this canoe, and would rather keep it than lose money. I have no idea what year the canoe was made, probably early '90s and the model of the old towne is not known. It does not say.

I hope this helps.

Later,

Dan

Sorry fellas, I didn't get my friends camera and my scanner for the computer is broken. I will try and get the pics up asap. The pics will be in my post, Netman. In the meantime, I will have to take out the canoe since it is so nice out and do a little crappie fishin. I hope everyone enjoys the weekend.

Chow for now,

Dan

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!  
    • leech~~
      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      Thanks guys for the tips looks like 3-4inch stick bright stick baits and bright spoons seem to be the go to.  Anybody ever vertical fish them or live bait? Hope the weather is.good next friday, i have always wanted to get out there and try it.  Bonus is the wife would be happy with some fresh salmon.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
