Me, too. When you're cruising along enjoying nature, you often ram into rocks and stuff. It's awfully to punch a hole in an aluminum canoe.

For high quality/performance canoes, check out the following brands: Mad River, Bell, Wenonah. Each has a website and dealers nationwide. You'll pay more than for an Old Town, for example, but you truly get what you pay for.

Happy paddling.

Hey thats great, some of these companies I've never heard of. Most sporting goods store will onlt tell you about the ones they sell and nothing else. Thanks for the great info, I'll look them up.

nice man, i'd love to hit up some of the natural lakes around the usa. most rivers eventually turn into rough spots, unless its man made. I made a mistake and said 14" when i meant 14', lol.

I have a Coleman 15' fibreglass canoe in CT & two Grumman alluminum, one 13' & one 15' up in NH.

Personally I like the Alluminum better for several reasons. They track better on ponds & lakes than the Coleman, they seem to slip over rocks & stumps better on rivers & theyre lighter & easier to carry.

Now, I was told that these new fiberglass canoes were lighter that the aluminium ones. We're looking for one that will be good to just float around, maby drop a fishing line once and awhile, but not much in shallow waters or near banks. Just for enjoying the day together.
