Built by Old Town in 1980 and christened Berta, this beautiful tripping canoe. At 17'2" Berta has hauled kids and adults for 10 days with gear and food, fished local rivers and reservoirs and provided us lots of memories, tales and exploits.

The hull design is very stable because it is designed to take on large lakes. It can be paddles solo or with multiple paddlers. I've paddled Berta fully loaded in 2-3 waves and she cuts them like a hot knife in butter.

The fiberglass hull is in good shape with expected scratches, no holes and still rock solid. Gunnels, thwarts, yoke and stern plates are mahogany and ash with brass hardware. Seats are ash with woven cane, stern seat is good, bow seat has a 1" whole beginning.

4 Paddles - 2 cherry beaver tails design, one kids paddle and 1 bent shaft paddle.

Great canoe and a good price. We had an '88 Old Town Columbia, similar hull design, fast and stable.

Did you mean to put this in the 'Items For Sale or Wanted' forum?

A fiberglass canoe isn't "aramid". Aramid implies Kevlar, but you state it's fiberglass.
