My 1971 Old Town CJ16

Post by Hank » Tue Dec 18, 2012 3:17 pm

Recently restored this old canoe. Its a collecters item in that it was the first ever designated solo canoe built. ( Production wise)
Over the years I have gone thru numerous kayaks, and or canoes, in search of the holy grail so to speak. Well folk it's not out there ,,,yet!
This canoe comes oh so close, for me at least. I know canoes are not for everybody and it's not my purpose to try and change anyone. I just want to show yall what I plan to keep. This is it for me, Nirvanna.
Push pole it, paddle, or simply cruise around. Dont like the trolling motor, its off, in under one minute. Pontoons, poof 15 seconds.

Here she is folk, The "Hanky Panky Express"

Any chance that pushpole comes apart? Would you sell it separately?

Ignore previous post - thought I was in the for sale section.

Nice ride!
