The new Leet Canoe

Samuel and I went out on Friday evening and got a great deal on this new (to us) canoe….

….and it cost us just $150!

The previous owner ran the keel over some rocks, and repaired it with “fiberglass foam” and say it’s watertight, but I will rip out their repair and fiberglass it properly at some point in the next week or so.
I’ll probably try and do a little reading on the internet on “how to repair”, of course…

Samuel and I are very excited!

I can’t tell you how many times in my life I have gone out and bought a couple of paddles, because of a new canoe, and here I am, at it again.
🙂

Saturday, we bought ourselves a couple of paddles, and had a quick tour of the lower Rouge. While it did take on a little water, we enjoyed being two men against the wild!

I managed to quickly and successfully remove all the old gunk this afternoon, and hope to get the boat back in the water by next weekend!
