I am thinking about getting a new canoe. I had a 17' Michicraft many years ago. My new canoe will be used in small lakes and easy moving rivers.
My white water days are behind me and pushing the limit has lost it's thrill for me!
What I am after is a canoe under 18' that will carry 1,500 lbs. and take a small kicker.
Light and wide in the middle works for me.
