EDIT: Seeing the unexpected demand at the posted price, I decided to list as an auction on ebay with local pickup. https://www.ebay.com/itm/333978613902?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

FS. Lightly used PakCanoe 160 by Scansport. Complete with bench seat, portage yoke, 2 paddles, 2 adult life vests and one youth life vest, and two large bags for storage. This is an expedition quality canoe, read more at their website for details. Retail new is over $3,000 plus tax for the canoe with all the accessories included.

PakCanoe hulls are formed by a reinforced PVC skin held under tension by an interlocking framework of tubular aluminum. Seat positions adjust to trim the canoe. Because of their skin-on-frame construction, PakCanoes flex and work with the waves in a way that hardshell canoes can’t. The bow will rise and climb over waves instead of crashing into them and taking on water. This lets PakCanoes run much drier than traditional canoes in storms and whitewater. The canoe will absorb severe impact and usually slide over or by rocks with no damage where fiberglass, kevlar, or aluminum canoes crack or get hung up. In this respect, the PakCanoe behaves much like ABS boats weighing 20 – 30 lbs more.

This.is.an.insane.price.for.this.boat. If I could stay married after its purchase, I'd drive to CA to pick it up.

I'm just glad it's not a 17, since I just paid full price for mine! If only it were a 15' for solo.....
