We're canoeing!

Iíve been trying to buy a canoe for months now. The problem is that I was very specific about the canoe I was after. I wanted a 17-18 Grumman Aluminum canoe. After doing some research I figured that was the best canoe for what I wanted to do with it. My father bought one for the family that was the same size when I was a kid. I remember spending hours in various lakes, rivers and ponds canoeing in it. Unfortunately Dadís canoe had a run in with a falling tree and was totaled.

I picked mine up off of e-bayÖ after losing a couple of others at the last minute. Todayís bidding ended at 1:40 in the afternoon and I think that helped me. Especially since this canoe came with a car carrier, paddles, life vests and extra floatation cushions. I got it the whole thing for $532.00.

Now I just have to go pick it up. I can barely contain my excitement.

I remember the tree incident. Turned your dad's canoe into a "u" boat :)

I tried to comment on the canoe, but your comment system kept saying that the link was bad words.
