We just moved to a lake and got our two boys in cubscouts. We thought that a conoe would be a good Christmas present. My wife found a couple old canoes on Craigslist, so we took a chance. Picked them up on the way home from work, in the dark and with about zero knowledge of canoes. The plastic one seems like it would be gtg. The OldTown one seems pretty old and in need of some repair. I guess this is the start of my new hobbie.
