condition: good
make / manufacturer: Pearson Enterprises
model name / number: 16 foot
This is a 16-foot fiberglass canoe that is the absolute best canoe that I have had the pleasure of paddling in my 70 years of pushing canoes around in more than 150 lakes and rivers. The canoe was built by Pearson Enterprises in Everett, Washington. It has several features that Old Town and Mad River never thought of. The flat bottom allows the canoe to slide sideways in rivers when you need to dodge boulders. The bottom is built with an end cut balsa wood core adding additional floatation to the sealed air tanks at the ends of the canoe. It is impossible to sink this canoe, and it has never been swamped in its lifetime. The stability will set the standard for all the other canoe manufacturers. The canoe yoke is shaped to fit your shoulders and has enough surface area to spread weight when it is on your shoulders. It is 36-inches wide at the yoke and retains more width than most canoes as you get nearer to the ends. I have simply got too old to be able to continue the activity that I love. The canoe has worked for too many years to be pretty anymore, but it is a solid boat that does not leak a drop of water. This will be the best performing general purpose canoe you will ever paddle. I am looking for a good home for it and will sell it for $300 to the right person. If this ad is still up, the canoe is still available.
