This canoe is listed at 79lb, but feels much much heavier due to its awkward shape; at it is almost 15ft long so it is very awkward. You will need a canoe trolley to port it around solo. And you will need some decent upper body strength to pick it up and put it on a car rack. I am working on perfecting flipping it over on the ground, lifting one end and walking my grip until I can set my shoulders on the center seat. Still a challenge right now, but once I get used to the way it will rock back and forth I should be fine.
CONS: Upon the guy opening the back of the freight truck, I realized there might be an issue with the boat because whomever packaged it decided it'd be smart/protective enough to wrap the boat in a single layer of plastic bagging (which was completely worn/torn to expose the hull to whatever surface it sits on).... How hard is it to invest in a little cardboard that you could set the canoe on as well as possibly make end caps for the stern/bow then wrap it up.. I WAS COMPLETELY SHOCKED! Once we got it off onto the grass, the boat was actually looking okay until I noticed a BASEBALL SIZE DENT right on the ridge of the stern.. Accompanied by two gouges and a part of the ridge that was shaved off.. Upon looking inside the boat I could actually see sunlight penetrating the hull... Also this boat did not have the OLD TOWN decals on the boat.. Weird.
PROS: Everything else on the interior was up to par, although it doesn't have a yoke, I was still able to pick it up like a light-weight canoe and wrest the center bench on my neck.. Since the bench is deeper in the bottom of the canoe than the yoke, it is a little harder to see where you are going when portaging though. I have a Yakima Megawarrior cargo basket on a Toyota 4runner that has the Yakima keel over mounting brackets attached and I can individually lift and place the canoe on the brackets without breaking a sweat in ~5 minutes tops. All these alone make up for the unprofessional and carefree attempt at packaging this product.
After attempting the refuse the delivery, I lost contact with Amazon costumer service due to "system update" and had to let the driver go only to talk to the customer service 45 minutes later (had the driver state the condition on the bottom of my copy of the receipt). Customer Service set it up that LTL would contact my later that afternoon and possibly pick it Monday.. Did not hear from them so I decided to give Amazon another call and they transferred me to the large freight department to a lady (LeaAnne I believe it was) who helped me greatly and rather quickly. She sent a replacement canoe and even took down my feedback about how these canoes are shipped (also filled out a delivery review). Hopefully by the 28th I'll receive an actual new canoe and will be able to swap out the beat up one on the spot.. I will update when that day is here..
(Also received my oars today, they were wrapped in about 30 yards of bubblewrap , for just oars!!! Why couldn't they have done this with my canoe???)
- Got the replacement today, had my fingers crossed I tell ya.. But thankful it was a different large freight company whom seemed to have taken better care in transporting the boat. Besides one minor scratch (a lot better than a dent and huge gouges) it was in excellent condition.. They delivered at 10 in the morning which allowed me to hit the lake this afternoon. A buddy and I had plenty of gear as well as my dog in the canoe and head no issues paddling into the wind. Well worth the wait!!!!!
