  Pardon, is "Rogue River" an Old Town?
  Posted by: ezwater on Feb-03-14 4:44 PM (EST)
 

I know the Saranac 16 and 14 are Old Town, but I've seen Rogue River canoes on our local river, and they were not labeled Old Town. Maybe just on the same showroom floor? But then canoe makers will copy almost any name.

The little I know of about the SC Broad is that it is a mixture of flat water and occasional rocky shoals. Where would you be putting on the water? Down toward Columbia, or up near the NC border?

On motors, it's best to get the lightest available consistent with good reliability. A 2.5 hp might be heavy. You could also consider using a double bladed paddle in the stern and leaving the motor at home unless it's windy. Also, check out the lakes in the area. Some may have back arms where power boats aren't destroying the tranquility.
