Solo Canoe: Old Town Pack

3 posts in this topic

This boat works great for fishing lakes or riding fast rivers. I love it, but need to get rid of it. One thing I love about it is that it is only 33 pounds, and short enough (12 feet) to throw in the back of my Jeep (with the window open).

Although it's a solo, when my son was smaller, he would sit in the front, though that's a bit cramped. However, there is plenty of room for a dog.

Old Town says this about it: There's enough versatility packed into the 12-foot, 33-pound Pack to keep it going from dawn to dusk, with every member of the family taking a turn. The Old Town Pack is made of tough, lightweight Royalex®. It's so light that anyone who can paddle solo can carry it; on a portage, to and from the water, on and off the car top. It's 33 lbs. of freedom — the Pack goes where other canoes can't.

Polyethylene decks with grab handles

Well-suited for double-bladed paddle

Durable, yet lightweight

Black vinyl gunwales

Wood web seat

Solo use

Tabs are new, good through '09.

I'm asking $450, includes a paddle.

Hi Standard.

Yes, it's still hanging out in the garage. I'm moving right now (only three blocks), but I think I have an extra seat for it at the old house that I would be happy to throw into the deal too.

Peace,

Kevin

      The Department of Natural Resources designated the state’s third groundwater management area this week. The Straight River Groundwater Management Area in northwestern Minnesota includes parts of southern Clearwater, northeast Becker, southwest Hubbard and northwest Wadena counties. Cities within the boundary include Park Rapids, Osage and Ponsford.  In addition to the designation, the DNR approved a management plan for it. The plan lays out five objectives with specific actions the DNR will take to ensure that use of groundwater remains sustainable within the area. The plan was developed over several years with the help of an internal DNR project team, an advisory team of external stakeholders, and additional public review and discussion. “With more than 10,000 lakes, thousands of miles of rivers and streams, and many thousands of acres of wetlands, it might be natural to think that our water is essentially unlimited,” said DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr. “But in some parts of the state, the unseen, underground aquifers that make up our groundwater resources are under pressure to meet growing needs for domestic water supplies, irrigation, industrial and other uses. These groundwater resources also are interconnected with lakes, streams and wetlands that we value for commerce, recreation, and water supplies. Those surface waters also provide the habitat needed by many animals and plants. If we are not careful in how we use water, both economic development and ecosystems could be put at risk.” The plan provides a framework within which the DNR will work with major water users, including municipalities and agricultural irrigators, to use groundwater sustainably. This cooperative effort will promote conservation, protect surface waters and water quality, improve the groundwater appropriations permitting process, and help resolve any conflicts that might arise among users. This is one of three groundwater management areas being established around Minnesota. The other two are in the north and east metropolitan area and in the Bonanza Valley near Paynesville in west-central Minnesota. More information, including plans and maps for the Straight River Groundwater Management Area, can be found at on the management area webpage. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I've never herd of any tullibee being caught from open water. Doesn't mean it's not possible but I'm not going to say you can go out and slay em. Hopefully others chime in and answer you question with certainty.

      I would say it's fine. M-MH are very good for many things just need to be careful when throwing things heavy if it's close to the max lure weight. That's when bad things happen. Didn't really answer your question but hope that helps.
