I've had my Grumman for about 9 years, and it was used when I got it. It has always been stored outside (in the shade). It has bounced of of trees in swift rivers, been dragged through low water streams and paddled solo on calm lakes. The Grumman is nearly indestructible when given a minimal amount of care, and when used with a modicum of common sense. I agree with all of the positives listed below. This is a GREAT all-around canoe for the recreational canoeist. It is not the most efficient, nor most maneuverable, and it weighs a LOT, but it is a work horse. I compare it to my old '88 Subaru - not too fast, not too pretty, but reliable, fearless and refuses to die.
