Solo tripping canoe advice

Hi. I am looking to buy a solo tripping canoe. Used is fine; the price of new may be prohibitive. So, older models are okay. I had been considering the Mad River Independence, but they're tough to find. Any suggestions out there? I weigh 175#. Not a pack boat. 15 feet or so. I will be using it in the Adirondacks, mostly flatwater but some moving. Not scared off by a little weight (I was brought up in wood/canvas boats), though light weight is certainly fine if not too pricey! Wood trim would be a nice touch,though not necessary. Any thoughts?

    You don't say where you are. There are events with solo canoes but if you are not in the East..they won't help.

    I expect you are looking at used carbon/kevlar or kevlar/glass
