Hey everyone, sorry to start out with a probably common question, but I have a couple of less specific ones as well. First off, I'm looking to buy my first canoe. I'm on a pretty tight budget, mainly because my wife and I are also into trail running, backpacking and cycling. All of that gear means we can't have the very best of everything (or anything!).
Anyway, I'm going Friday to look at an old Wenonah that the CL poster calls a "Deluxe 18 Ft." He also claims it is fiberglass. I'm not sure if he knows what he is talking about or not. I didn't see where they made any glass canoes, and I don't know enough about the older ones to know if they did.
Assuming it is, what sort of stuff should I look for to see if it is in decent enough shape? The price is right, so I'll buy it if it is ok. How much does sun damage glass canoes? I've got a couple of more questions, but my wife is glaring at me so I'll ask them later!
