Do you happen to know the weight and hull thickness? I haven't found specs on that model online yet. I am looking for a lightweight version of an aluminum canoe.....I already have a heavy one.

Sorry I don't know, I was trying to look online as well for specs and couldn't find them. I saw that smokercraft didn't have a number you could call on their web site either. It's not the thin lightweight version though, appears comparable to a friends alumacraft in the 70's lb range. I'm sure it could be done for someone putting in enough legwork, feel free to post so everyone knows if you find it.

Been getting a few questions asking why I'm selling it...

A friend is getting a new kevlar and selling me his royalex for a great price.

The only time I really go to the cities is going through to Rochester, and I would rather not drag it that far in the back of my Ranger unless it was sold. If you ever go north I'm right off Hwy 10 in St. Cloud.

i'm interested, but was wondering if that is a decent canoe to take into the bwca. I'm not familiar w/ canoes but last year i took aluminum ones in and they weren't heavy at all. Is 17ft. average or too big?

The canoe is currently pending sale but will be a couple weeks before this takes place. I will post when it is sold, or if for some reason does not get sold.

Just an update....

I asked the person I'm holding it for to send some money to continue holding it for them another two weeks until they can get here. If this does not work out for some reason I've had enough other e-mails that I would consider it sold, once again I will post once it's gone for sure.

OK folks I can't believe this is still for sale????? This is an awesome boat for the price. It built to last and anybody at all in the market for a canoe should be seriously considering this. I have seen it first hand it is still rock solid and vary stable for size. BWCA, yes I would take it there but of course how many times have you gone and you always bring everything except the kitchen sink. Well now you can because this is big enough to take big waters with gear and not worry about swamping compared to your typical 14' canoe. If I was in the market I would buy it. Just look any were for a 14-16' in the clasified paper and you couldn't touch this for the same price.

Ha ha thanks the the plug MR. I have never weighed the canoe but am guessing it weights in the upper 70's. The canoe has been the the boundary waters before (notice the yoke)and does as well as other aluminum canoes, which of course can't be compared to kevlar or royalex. My primary use for it now is a river runner which is what it will remain if not sold.

      Spring turkey hunters hoping to bag a tom during the first two weeks of the season have until Friday, Jan. 26, to apply for a lottery permit. The season runs from April 18 to May 31 and is divided into six hunt periods, A through F (see table below). Hunt A and B licenses for firearms hunters age 18 and older are limited in availability and assigned via lottery drawing. Turkey lottery applications cost $5 and can be purchased online at mndnr.gov/licenses, by phone at 888-665-4236, or in person from a license agent. Successful applicants will receive a postcard in the mail by mid-February and can purchase their hunting license starting March 1. Firearms licenses for hunts C, D, E and F are not lottery-limited and will be available for purchase over-the-counter beginning March 1. All licensed turkey hunters can participate in Hunt F if they have an unused tag from one of the earlier hunt periods. Archery and youth hunters (under 18) are exempt from the lottery and may purchase a spring turkey license valid during all hunt periods, including hunts A and B. Surplus lottery licenses from hunts A and B, if available, will be sold over-the-counter starting in mid-March. Visit mndnr.gov/hunting/turkey for more information about turkey hunting in Minnesota. 2018 Spring Turkey Hunt Periods
      Hunt A: April 18 – 24
      Hunt B: April 25 – May 1
      Hunt C: May 2 – 8
      Hunt D: May 9 – 15
      Hunt E: May 16-22
      Hunt F: May 23-31 Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Youth and adults can learn to hunt turkeys this April with experienced volunteers who will cover safe hunting techniques, how to call-in turkeys, hunting tactics and field dressing a bird. “We teach the skills and techniques that allow new turkey hunters to become lifelong hunters,” said Mike Kurre, learn-to-hunt program coordinator with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources. “This has been a successful program and as a bonus, we love hearing how former participants go full circle to teach others how to hunt.” Participants can apply through Monday, Feb. 12. The hunts are Saturday, April 21, and Sunday, April 22, and provide opportunities to access locations that may otherwise be closed to hunting. “We get volunteers from the National Wild Turkey Federation and this is the 16th year we’ve cooperated for these hunts,” Kurre said. “Over the years we’ve introduced more than 5,000 people to these hunting experiences. We also work with the Minnesota National Guard to get military adults and their families into turkey hunting.” Details about how to apply and costs to participate are available at mndnr.gov/turkeyhunt. A pre-hunt orientation is required and all participants will need to have a valid firearms safety certificate or its equivalent. Youth must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Overall participation in the hunts is restricted by the number of volunteers and private lands that are available. Anyone interested in providing turkey hunting land for the mentored youth hunts should contact the Keith Carlson, Save the Habitat Save the Hunt coordinator for the National Wild Turkey Federation in Minnesota at kcanoka@comcast.net.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      Gov. Mark Dayton has proclaimed Jan. 20-28 as Snowmobile Safety Awareness Week in Minnesota. This an opportunity for the Department of Natural Resources, volunteer safety instructors, the Minnesota United Snowmobilers Association (MNUSA) and its 250 member snowmobile clubs to join together to recognize the importance of safe, responsible snowmobiling. “It’s a fun and exciting activity, but snowmobilers should always remember to make safety a top priority,” said Conservation Officer Bruce Lawrence, DNR recreational vehicle coordinator. “They should also always use common sense and keep a clear head when riding.” Here are some other key safety points: Snowmobiling and alcohol don’t mix – don’t drink and ride. Smart riders are safe riders – take a snowmobile safety training course. Always wear a helmet and adequate clothing. When night riding slow down – expect the unexpected. Know before the ride  – always check local trail and ice conditions. Cross with care. Know risks and be prepared – make every trip a round trip. One is the loneliest number – never ride alone. Ride safe, stay on the trail – respect private property. To legally ride a snowmobile in Minnesota, residents born after Dec. 31, 1976 need a valid snowmobile safety certificate. Options for both classroom and online classes can be found at http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/safety/vehicle/snowmobile/index.html People can find Minnesota snowmobiling events and activities on the MNUSA webpage: https://mnsnowmobiler.org/get-involved/mnusa/events.

      Lol! Smurfy  Its not as easy to identify areas like the old days the ice towns in Mertens bay and in front of Steils old house on cedar island aren't there like years of past but she's still the same chain that you grew up on. And IMO better than when we wee younger.
