  Aluminum

I'm betting that no matter whether the feedback given regarding aluminum canoes is positive or negative; the vast majority of those who "used" to paddle aluminum, do NOT do that anymore. Nor do they wish to do so.

I had an old, aluminum "beater" that I paddled for a couple of thousand miles in my youth. That was all I could afford. It got me out on the water; that was my only concern. I upgraded to a near mint condition 17 foot standard Grumman. After I bought an Old Town Discovery 174; the Grumman just took up space. I sold it many years ago, and have never missed it in any way.
