...... about half the time , I'd say get a canoe that weighs no more than about 65 lbs. .

A tandem that is 15' min. length (longer is better) , no more than 35"-36" wide , and Royalex .

Shop used to find a canoe that is Royalex , and don't concern to much about appearence , you just don't want "bad" damage .

I purchased (locally) a nice used 16'-10" old town Royalex canoe for 400. bucks ... you can too . It weighs about 73 lbs. because it's an older model (thicker ??) .

What state and area are you in ?? ... anywhere near Stamford, Connecticut (there's a 14'-10" Old Town Pathfinder (Royalex , weighs 57 lbs.) selling soon there ... Pathfinder was renamed Camper .
