Canoe - $350 (Burlington)
This is a Michicraft canoe - DE-17 Series. It is a strong, durable canoe that is very popular with canoe rental places. It's aluminum canoe that is Extra Wide - Extra STABLE. This one includes a pair of paddles as well. $350 or best offer.

Here is a blurb that I found online about these canoes:
"Michicraft canoes, like other brands such as Aerocraft, Smokercraft, Alumacraft, etc use airplane grade aluminum. They are designed with 'sponsons' to be WAY more stable than a traditional canoe. (See the photos and the description below).
Sponsons are projections from the sides of a watercraft, for protection, stability, or the mounting of equipment such as armaments or lifeboats, etc. They extend a hull dimension at or below the waterline and serve to increase flotation or add lift when underway.
Sponsons are commonly used on jetskis and other personal watercraft such as canoes to provide either additional buoyancy and thus stability against capsize, or hydrodynamic forces to resist capsize. They can often be easily attached to an existing craft in order to improve its stability."
