I am looking to purchase a family canoe for tripping on lakes and slow moving rivers. I am looking for a 16 or 17 ft. canoe that has excellent initial stability. I was looking at some local classifieds and came across a 17 foot Green Grumman ABS hull canoe. It has two caned seats, wood gunwales and thwarts. It is labeled as a Grumman Boats Model 6K, Marathon, NY. Capacity is listed as 700 lbs. As far as I know I have never come across a non-aluminum Grumman canoe. Does anybody know anything about this model? The asking price is $400 and it looks to be in good condition from the pictures I have seen.

boat, long ago. Except ABS and the 16 foot dimension, I can't vouch for the details. At the time, it looked like a faster cruising boat than the ubiquitous Blue Hole OCA knock-offs.

Never saw one in ABS. But did see one in fiberglass. Nice hull,great trim, very similar to the Wenonah Sundowner. Heavy and expensive doomed it. If they did ABS I would wonder who molded the hull?

Did you purchase this boat? I just got the same boat a few days ago, and don't know much about it. Let me know if you found any information...i appreciate it
