I have owned one for almost ten years now. Its the silver with red trim. The paint on the green ones wore off way too fast. I put an 8 hp suzuki outboard long shaft. I built a homemade trailer for it and built a riser off the back sq stern to raise the motor shaft out of the water to an acceptable level.

I have used this canoe in many lakes and creeks. Still havnt taken it into a river yet.

This canoe is very agile yet stable at the same time. I can easily stand up and fly fish without the boat tipping over. The canoe only weights 100lbs too. With just about any outboard you will need to add a dolephin. Mine would not get on step until I added one. Just recently I bought a trolling motor to use instead of the outboard. Even with a small trolling motor it skoots right along.

There are a few things I wish were different, one being the drain plug. The drain plug is practically useless unless you have a foot of water in the boat.

Any question you have feel free to ask.
