So I have a friend from another website who lives in Canada and she has a friend who lives in Washington. This Washington friend had a canoe trailer in Mn in storage for 5 years. She was done with storing it and asked my friend if she knew anyone nearby in Mn that wanted it. My friend asked me and I said yes and we went pick it up from her brother and it had a canoe strapped to the top. I texted her and she forgot she owned a canoe and said I could have that too! So now I have a 10 foot solo canoe and a sweet custom trailer. I couldn't let it all be free so I did send her something for it. Who knew I would have another canoe by the end of the day! Crazy!!!

Congrats on the theoretical canoe and trailer! Now post some photos to make it real!

Just kidding, but post some photos!

I get excited over an unexpected deal on fishing tackle.

This sounds like the best kind of day ever. Congrats!

I'm still in shock! The spare has that Eagle cover so I just set it up for the picture. I took the canoe for a paddle already. It needs a few patches but nothing major. Unbelievable.

Yes the trailer was what we thought we were picking up. But I didn't have a picture. She said it was made by her dad and he made it after a classic car. I had no idea what we were getting into lol.

This is my 6th canoe. First one that is small enough not to need a canoe license.

Which one of your kids is claiming the canoe for themselves? It does appear to be kid-sized.

The kids already have a 12 foot canoe. And a few of them have their own kayaks. This one is all mine. It fits me perfectly to run it down to the river and paddle away when no one is looking lol

Congrats on BOTH the canoe and the trailer! I'm just curious what the little boat is? I wish I were small enough to plant my backside in a tiny canoe and paddle off. Years ago I picked up a pair of Bell Bucktails for $600; not apiece, for both. I tried, but just too much of me for the little canoe! ENJOY IT!

That is a really nice trailer! Plus a free boat. Can't go wrong with that!

Great luck, cut off that tongue and extend it a few feet and you'll have a great trailer that will fit almost any boat....

That trailer is seriously cool! Hope you get out on the river all the time in the Nana.

gotta agree there...needs a longer tongue. Find someone good that can do it for you. A 17 footer might struggle with that trailer.. you already have a bargain...

My husband can weld if we need to do that. I already have a few trailers, this one is just so cute! I think I will keep it this way for the smaller boats.. the kayaks, the 12 foot kids canoe and this 10 foot canoe.
