What a great boat I have a very early one still works great. Had a split in seam repaired with a RV plastic septic tank repair kit and painted red to match with vinyl paint.
A neat trick to try is make a mount on rear platform that will axle two push mower wheels mount them about 4 inches above platform, when boat is to heavy to carry flip it and pull it, if mount is fabricated right you could leave excess metal out to one side to mount a trolling motor. you can also buy at any hardware store a broomstick clip, mount two on both sides, inside canoe to mount you're paddles (works better with aluminum paddles) try these neat tricks to make you're next outing more enjoyable.
I still love my 17 footer, very stable, unsinkable canoe.
