"Normal wear and tear"

I thought this was kinda funny: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mad-River-Canoe-/170986954211?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27cf9ddde3

Check out the 4th pic. And the Teton is a poly boat, so good luck fixing it.

    That's more than some do.
  • That's pretty funny!

    I don't think they make enough epoxy for that
  • actually they do
    I repaired an Old Town Penobscot Discovery 174 poly canoe that was much worse, with areas of the outer solid poly not just split, but gone in areas up to 4 inches wide over 3-4 feet of the hull at both stems, and extensive erosion of the foam core. Less than $50 of G Flex, along with some silica powder, graphite powder, fiberglass and Dynel cloth was enough for the job.

    Of course, I got that canoe for free.

    I still think I might have overpaid, though.
  • Wear & Tear
    I don't mind a little wear...it's the "tear" that would worry me. :)
  • Well...
    The proportion of the tear to hull length isn't much greater than that on the titanic, and we all know how well that worked out.

  • Good catch!
    Maybe that's what the seller planned to say, just to claim honesty.
