BP, have you given thought of looking at kayaks? I’ve hunted out of both and found the kayaks were a lot more stable than canoes. Your center of gravity is on the water line, not a foot or so above it like a canoe. The one I hunted out of for years was a two man it was 13’ 6” I had all the room I needed for my decoys and me. I’m 6’3” 230 and I felt safe in one. Just a thought. :thumbsup:

There's a place up in Watertown that sells factory second "Old Towns". I'd check either the paper, or something like the "swap sheet" we have here. You can generally find used canoes pretty cheap. I got mine for free, all I had to do was patch a couple spots and paint it.
