Vintage Aluminum Aero Craft 17' Canoe

Item number: 300528861038
Item location: Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States

Offered here is a vintage aluminum 17' Aerocraft canoe.

When we last used this canoe, it was in great canoeing shape.

I always liked using the 17' instead of the 15' because it was a bit
easier to handle.

Stored upside down in the yard on a steel rack since last outing
in 1993.

As you can see, this is the old style with the web seats. The web
seats are no longer functioning. As you can see, the webbing is gone
on one seat and a piece of wood has replaced the other one. Pretty
sure you could remove the board and re-web the seats. We just used
those stadium seats on top of the bars....probably not the smartest
thing we've ever done, but it worked at the time!

Some kind of brown stuff on the bottom and one of the sides. Not quite
sure but think it could have been applied to guard against
leaking. Bottom seems to be okay, save for all the scuffing!

Painted blue inside and some of that is rubbing off.
