  Not as delicate

as I thought it would be.

My first "real canoe" was fiberglass and I used it on some shallow rocky rivers where I repeatedly glanced off rocks. Every time I bounced off one it made god-awful cracking noises, but rarely could I find any damage beyond a chink in the gelcoat. If you can stand the weight of them, don't worry too much about the strength.

And, because they are old technology, you can buy a lot of boat for very little money provided you can find a good one.
