I am looking to buy a Souris River Q16 or 17; a MNII; or a Bell/Northwind tandem for paddling on the lakes of the Canadian shield.
Basically looking for a nice, used kev boat.
I can drive several hundred miles from Chicago to pick up.
Hit my email envelope with any responsive items.
Thanks. JIM

That's boat-porn if I've ever seen it.

Also, fwiw, I have a Northwoods, and it's the best tripping and fishing combo I could ever hope for. Blackgold is a cherry on top.

Sure is a pretty boat, but more than we're looking for.
Still looking, so if you have something in the 16-17 foot range...

OMG, I'm a purveyor of boat porn! My mother would be ashamed ;)

As you know I just finished my search for a canoe so I've been looking all over the place. Have you been checking with the outfitters? If not.... here's some info on what I found.... Sawbill and Sawtooth have theirs listed on their websites with pictures.

Sawbill Outfitters has a Wenonah Adirondack for $1450 (this canoe was my backup that if it was still available in the spring and I hadn't found something from a private seller I was going to get) They also have Wenonah 17 and Wenonah MN2's for $1450-$1500. Sawbill refinishes their canoes before the sell them.

Sawtooth Outfitters has a Wenonah 17 for $1400 and an Itasca for $1200. Not sure if these are refinished.

Gunflint Outfitters emailed me a flyer with used canoes that they were selling when I asked if they had anything for sale. You could email them and ask for it. This was in Nov. so I don't know what's still available. They had SR 17's for $800 and $1200, Northwind 17's for $1900+ and some others.

Rockwood Outfitters contacted me and they had a couple of Wenonah Spirit 2s for $1400.

There has been a Northwind 17 on St. Cloud MN Craiglsist for $1600

Sorry if this info doesn't help you. I thought I'd throw it out there just in case it did help because I know you really want to find something.

Thanks, ducks. Yeah, I have been looking at outfitters, too.
My real target is a 16-16.5' tandem that I can also use as a solo.
I have a Prism I would sell( one buyer waiting).
I currently have a line on a nice Bell Prospector 16 in black gold layup.
Once seller gets back to town I think we may do a deal.
BUT, since that's not a sure thing I am still looking.

Yeah..... that Prospector looked sweet from the other thread. Good Luck! It looks like a beauty. Definitely worth taking a look.

If that falls through...... The Adirondack at Sawbill is a small tandem that can be used solo. In the Gunflint Outfitters flyer there were two 2017 Northstar Polaris for $1950. From the pics they didn't look like they were used much the one year they had them. I rented a Polaris from Rockwood set up tandem for my daddy/daughter trip last summer and absolutely loved it......I liked paddling it better than a SR Q16 and Adirondack.... But, the Gunflint Outfitters ones are set up solo with only a middle seat and no portage yoke. I passed on that because I would have had to install 2 more seats for tandem use plus a yoke and the price was already out of my budget.

How did I miss this one? Know anything about it, or am I a day late and [1600 dollars] short?

hmmmm. I don't see it on there now :(. The first time I saw it on there was Oct. when I started looking for a small tandem. The last time I saw it was about a week ago. They had purchased it use from an outfitter.
