Hello. This site is a wonderful resource! I'm glad I found it.
I have the opportunity to buy a VERY used '96 wenonah adirondack canoe for $250. There are some areas that have exposed fiberglass and a few areas of questionable patches, but it doesn't leak. It is outfitted for racing with padded contoured seats and foam drink holders. Also comes with 2 foam core bent shaft paddles.
This would be my first canoe purchase. I'm a beginner/intermediate paddler. I've probably paddled 500 miles in my life thus far.
My wife and I would use this canoe to take to local lakes and to weekend campouts. A buddy and I have also been toying with the idea of competing in the Texas water safari next year.
Would you buy this boat if you were in my position?
