OT canoes

Recommended Posts

Saw an OT canoe for $300 at Sam's Club over the weekend. Anyone have any experience with these? Looked decent, three seater...they give you two junk paddles, but you could easily buy better ones. The seats weren't very big, but at my age I don't have a lot of junk in the trunk yet. For the price, it seemed like a good deal...nice hard plastic and lightweight.

Still would be a little nervous. Maybe too good of a deal.

Should I get one or wait to buy a used aluminum or pony up for the WeNoNah I've been slobbering over each year at the in-laws?

Hey chisel, was it plastic or Royalex? Do you recall what type of Old Town canoe it was?

I have an Old Town, as does my paddling buddy, & those things have taken a ton of abuse over the past ten years with no noticeable change in performance.

For $300, I'd pick up the Old Town if it's a length & weight that's OK with you. And I've been fondling the Kevlar canoes, especially the Souris Rivers, at shows for years. I figure I have another five-ten years in the muscles before I give up & go Kevlar. smile

Definitely plastic. Never saw a model number or anything. Will have to check if they are still hawking them.

For $300 the price is right I guess. I didn't even know that OT meant Old Town; a big canoer I am not.

Seems awfully cheap. With the way those guys special spec stuff from manufacturers I'm not so sure that the name alone goes real far. And if Old Towne made it I'm pretty sure they'd be bragging it up. Take a close look at the metal edging, thwarts, seats etc and see if you think they look like they'd hold up.

The price is a good deal. hard to find a used grumman for less than that. If it actually an Old Town, it would be a good vehicle.

I doubt that is an Old Town Canoe. Sounds to me like it's an off brand plastic canoe. If it is and Old Town canoe and made of Royalex material it's a very good deal.

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
