17' Aluminum Canoe *Price reduced*

23 posts in this topic

Smokercraft 17' aluminum canoe in great shape other than the paint job. There are no dents in it and I will include two paddles but keep the foam yoke pads on it. Also registration is new valid through 2009. Now asking $350. Contact bgradin@charter.net

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.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.
