I bought my 16' Mohawk Royalex canoe used,from a rental, in 1991. I have used it on local shallow rivers which means logs,sand and gravel pullovers. My paddling buddies have fiberglass canoes, these canoes are lighter, but I would not even consider fiberglass for any use, given the price is about the same. If you are uncertain about fiberglass or royalex, take it from me go with the royalex.
