Not an easy decision but I am going to sell my 1998 Bell Northwind. This is a special edition. Bell made very few of these. It's red kevlar crystal with spruce gunwales. It's got an original cane stern seat. Aluminum foot brace. The sliding bow seat has been replaced with an (i think it's ash) sliding bow seat with webbing and there was an additional small wood brace added to the gunwales (these 2 changes were made by Ted Bell a couple years ago). Weight is about 45lbs. The kevlar is in good condition. Prob someone could add skid plates but i never liked them. Always stored inside. Never any major damage other than gentle wear and tear from great BWCA trips.

A classic. A beauty for sure. It has always paddled well.

I'm in Orono if you want to see it, text me please. $1800 obo. Hurry, I might change my mind! 612-306-1050

That's a beautiful canoe and a good price. I'm sorely tempted, but I need another canoe like I need another hole in my head......

I am surprized you decided to part with it. Beautiful boat! I just don't get to buy any canoes. I already have more than I can paddle.

Oh, you can have as many as you want - why not? Enjoy!
