Hey guys! Wanted some advice. Have zero experience with a canoe, but I have been kayaking for a little while. I’ve decided to make the switch and get myself a canoe, mostly to fish out of. I’ll be taking it on large ponds and calm lakes. My budget is very low, but I do have a relatively inexpensive kayak to sell/trade. I’ve decided to go the trade route, as I’ll get a better value. I should add that I’ll be solo most of the time, but it would be great to take my wife or my kids along sometimes.
I’ve gotten a few potential trade offers and I was hoping to get some advice. Here are the canoes that I’ve been offered in trades…
Rogue River 14
Old Town Guide 147
Old Town Saranac 146
I’m thinking the Saranac is my best bet. It has a middle seat that I assume I can use when I’m solo. The Guide is a great canoe (says the reviews) but may not be good for solo paddling??
Any advice would be much appreciated. I am a total newbie here! Thanks in advance!!
