I am looking for a Canoe to meet my needs.
I am a solo rider, and my 40lb dog will be tagging along. I also am an angler.
I am 6'0 and 300 pounds. I would like a canoe that can carry my weight well, able to be moved with one person, and extremely stable.
Total weight probably would be 450-550 with all equipment.
I don't need an extremely fast canoe. But it shouldn't be extremely slow either. I mostly won't be going too far out.
Dry is pretty important too, or at least, a way to provide my dog with a platform off the water inside the canoe.
Cost... no minimum price, maximum around $1500. The $800 range would be ideal. Used is fine with me.
Thanks, I appreciate feedback.
