Canoe - 17ft Aluminum - $400 (Downingtown)
Super nice, premier 17 foot aluminum canoe manufactured by Browning Marine. The model is the Apache 17 ft. It has a maximum Horsepower 5 if you want to put a motor on it for trolling. It can hold 3 people easily. The maximum person capacity( pounds) 745, Maximum weight capacity (person, motor & gear) (pounds) 825. It is light, wide with a level hull. It is much more stable than the canoes with rounded hulls.

This canoe was designed by a group of aircraft engineers (Browning Marine was a subsidiary of Aerocraft). As a result the assembly of the canoe is of great quality and lightweight for its size group. It's wide body design is held together with aircraft fasteners, AN470AD-6 to be exact. These are very heavy duty rivets with a shear strength of 26,000 PSI and tensile strength of 38,000 PSI. The canoe is very solid.

We have owned this canoe for over 30 years. Great for fishing lakes and rivers. But we haven't used it for the last 10 and decided it was time to let another family enjoy it. It has some minor scratches and dings but nothing more than usual use. It has no leaks.

Based on the prices of aluminum canoes, I've priced this to sell and I'm firm on the price. This will be a cash, no check transaction.

Respond by email and we can arrange a time for you to look it over.
