I hate to sell this canoe but it is just a bit too heavy for me to portage and to get on and off my SUV. Unfortunately I do not live next to water. This is a beautiful example of an old canoe that has survived. We believe that it is an old Peterborough built canoe and if it is then according to records of lengths and sizes it was built around 1910. It has a serial or job number engraved on it. We have used this canoe this summer. and it paddles amazing. If I could get it to and from water without lifting it I would keep it for sure.Obviously I cannot ship this but I could deliver it within reason from Ottawa Canada, even to the boarder at Massenna, NY.
