Canoe Photo Product Review Spotlight
Osprey 140 canoe by Old Town Canoe
I have used osprey canoe for about six months on lake and rivers. Light enough for me to handle alone but still have three on board for fishing... Osprey held up nicely to rough water, rapids & rocks for a great long canoe trip... Great all around canoe for me to use for many years... Rating 10 of 10 by nh
