autumn mist solo canoe by sawyer
Posted by: old_user on Aug-21-09 9:01 AM (EST) Category: unassigned
I've seen some discussions on this site about the Sawyer company coming back into business and the Autumn Mist being produced again, but I can't find the company on the web or any information about where to buy one. Can anyone help?

Why would you want to buy a new canoe that was designed so long ago when modern designs are so much superior?

You know you NEED my Sawyer Summersong and Sawyer Starlight in your collection. I'd make you suuuuuch a deal.

It amuses me someone would say that since Dave Yost is thought to be one of the better canoe designers of our present day.

Maybe you wish everyone in the market for an efficient solo would buy a "new modern" design and the prices for the Old Stuff would drop. But would the drop in value of your collection of obsolete Sawyer designs be worse than being able to buy more for a song. A Summersong,

Thought the "Old designs" was in jest. Maybe I'm a bit dense, but I didn't think anyone was disrespecting DY. WW

I just didn't want to see a guy sell himself short.

Buewater is producing the design and is calling it the Mist.

I was jesting. I still like Sawyers. I only have eight though. I tried to buy another one today. I do not have an Autumn Mist yet. I had never even seen one until I got a chance to paddle one at Coopers Lake this past June. It seemed kinda fat to me. I prefer long sleek designs for day tripping. I suppose it would be a fine choice for a week or so trip. I meant no disrespect to Charlie Wilson or David Yost. The billboard in Lake Placid post really made me laugh though.
I've got your Summersong : )|

well george, seems yanoer has some and i have the other 2 for you, a autumn mist (1984) still has the layup sticker on it, superlite layup, in very good cond. also a loon, has thin gelcote in some area, appeared not to have had very much gelcote on it, its very light, kinda gold color on the inside, made in 1964, never paddled them, just bought them becasue they were unique in my area
