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.
