16 foot Aluminum Canoe - $400
Solid classic 16 foot aluminum canoe manufactured by Browning Marine. The model is the CH-16. It is rated for maximum horsepower 5 if you want to put a motor on it for trolling. It is rated for 4 persons, the maximum person capacity 765lbs, Maximum weight capacity (person, motor & gear) 845lbs. It is light, wide with a level hull. It is much more stable than the canoes with rounded hulls.
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.
My family has owned this canoe for over 40 years. Great for fishing lakes and rivers. But we haven't used it for the last 2 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.
This is from the NADA price book:
Founded following the Second World War, Aerocraft and the Browning Aerocraft Marine company quickly rose as a leading supplier of aluminum boats to the United States market. In later years, the Browning Aerocraft Marine/Aerocraft expanded production to include fiberglass hulls. The Browning Aerocraft Marine company was saved by Faqua in 1974 though soon experienced a tough economy as well as a factory fire contributing to the downfall of the boat builder. Browning Aerocraft Marine began liquidation in late 1979 with the final boats built for the 1980 model year.
