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.

    • Nice pics jbell! That is a nice yellow garden spider you got there.
    • I had a nice size garden spider on my garage door. It stayed there about 3 weeks. Had a mate who I assume did his business and met his doom. I finally needed to open the door so I safely caught it and let it go in the woods near our house.  Her body is about an inch long. Probably about 3 inches total.       
    • 😄i have several "pet" spiders around the deck and garage. sometimes when i'm bored i swat flies with the swatter and feed them!!!!!!
    • its wierd, my cukes the stems from the ground out look like they were died and dried out but the ends were green, plenty of flowers and producing.quite frankly, i got 2 medium size boxed of cukes in the frig i need to use or give away. i know this isnt right to say, i'm getting cucumbered out.   same with the peppers, i had to look thru a jungle to find them most of the summer as the cukes exploded and basiclly covered them. i have enough peppers for what i need, froze some for chili, and have eaten my share. and again there were no small ones coming in to keep them in the ground to make it till first frost.   my tomatoes, the ones i may be pulling soon are running out of tomatoes worth while . 
    • That's too bad, did your garden get dried out at some point? You had a pretty good start to the season and had a jump on my garden.
    • I assume you burned your deck down immediately after taking these photos.
    • Never been a big fan of webspinners, but those orb weavers are cool to look at and harmless. And this is the time of year that you seem to see them.   More of a fan of Wolf and Jumping spiders myself.  
    • Cool!  Did you take a picture when you smashed it? That big som-abatch could use a 22 through it! 😘
    • Maybe that is the way they are going to move it all on-line?
