done it

I have added a canoe, Old Town Pathfinder, to our camping equipment really looking forward to using it this summer, I have not paddled a canoe in years so if you see a old man going around and around with grandkids stop and offer suggestion on how to get back to camp.

Sounds fun! How did you end up mounting it for travel?

the only water my canoe has seen in the last few years has been rain water.. just cannot LIFT it on top of the truck cap.... the challenges of being single

I bought a roof kit from a local sporting goods store it had 4 rubber pads and rope with S hooks, placed it on top of my truck and tied it down. I was not real comfortable with that so last night I went on line and ordered a canoe holder, it mounts on my trailer hitch and roof rack for the truck, That will be a lot more secure.

It was made by Old Town and only weights 57 lb. it is very light made of a composite material.

Yeah our Scout Troop canoed/kayaked the Pocomoke River last Fall. We had a few incidents where boys got wet from capsizing! We went upriver about 5 miles, stopped at the Park store to rest and paddled back to our site, both times against the current because the river is tidal and the tide changed just as we were coming back! I was tired after that.
