Our family is just getting into paddling, and we’re contemplating getting a cheap, used canoe to get us started on small local lakes and rivers. There is an Old Town Discovery on Marketplace near us for $300. Here is the description from the seller:
"This canoe has seen some action, but does not leak. It’s had a few repairs which are pictured. Comes with 2 brand new paddles. "
The “repairs” are what has me questioning this as we are very new to this and have only rented canoes on our handful of river trips here in Missouri. I’m not even sure what questions to ask regarding the repairs. Here is a picture of the repairs:
For anyone with more knowledge than me (which is probably about everyone on this forum), does this picture concern you? What questions would you ask the seller about the repairs? Does the price seem fair?
Any input or advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!
