Canoe Suggestions

Looking for a used tandem canoe that is an efficient go straight boat for inland lakes, day trips, possibly short tripping. Lets hear your suggestions.


Wenonah Spirit II.

a used wenonah spirit II :wink: NM

what’s available? NM

There are a couple of them listed here
in the classified ad section.

It is hard to find a real good used canoe for sale at a decent price.

Most times they will be sold to a friend of the seller and never even advertised.

If you can find a Penobscot 17, that would be a good choice.

My first choice would be a Jensen 18, but I don’t think you will find a used one.



Also consider Escape

I was looking for Spirit II but ended up with last year's Escape at a discount. Read the reviews.
You did mention "efficient" and "go straight".
