My Ram x was purchased used in 1984 after it blew off the top os a car at 70 mph. I replaced the aluminum braces and used the canoe for everything for the next 20 years. it has been shot with a 50 pound compound bow, run over rocks and waterfalls, and seen heavy use on lakes and rivers. This is not the lightest or the most manuverable of canoes but it has to be the most indestructible. There is no better canoe built for a novice or a family wanting a minimum maintainance canoe. 20 years of outdoor storage has not damaged the canoe in the least, a far cry from the wood and canvas I learned on.
