I am looking at buying a used canoe soon. A person close to me keeps quite a few in stock all year round. The thing is pretty much all of them are aluminum.
He said he has one Old town tripper 17ft made out of royalex with the 1500lb capacity. All the rest are aluminum
Has a few grumman 17 and 18
one alumacraft 17
two smokercraft 17
one michicraft 17
Do I buy the old town or do I go with a aluminum? I want good fishing canoe for lakes and rivers with the possibility of a BWCA trip. If I buy a aluminum one what brand would you suggest and why?
