Advertising is generally not permnitted in these forums so if you are looking for a better offer then posting a classified advertisment at http://classifieds.wcha.org/ will get a much better response. If you are looking for information about how to value your canoe then the message at http://forums.wcha.org/showthread.php?t=57 should answer your questions. One alternative would be to put it up for auction at http://www.ebay.com or a live auction and see what the open market thinks that it is really worth. I am not an expert on Lakefields but an $800 offer for your canoe sounds reasonable to me.
Thank you for your kind response and recommendations. I was not trying to solicit a better offer but I can see where someone would think that I was! I tried to find the classifieds to see if there were other Lakefields for sale. I trust your input and recommendation and will take the $800 offer tomorrow. Again I apologize for being ignorant of the forum policies. Since I'm too old and infirmed, I probably will not be back on this forum (I wish my health would allow me - I envy you guys!). Its OK to remove my name from your membership list.
