Bicycle Pulled Trailer for your canoe/kayak SOLD
A metal take-apart trailer for pulling your canoe/kayak beheind a bicycle. It comes complete: all hardware and padding. It has a small peice that screws to the bicycle, all the rest is pinned together. Pull nicely behind Jean's 7 speed. Takes down to fit in a car.
Jean is giving up her original Teal solo canoe. It has been the subject of numerous photos and trips and is dearly loved. However it is time to find it a new home. It is a very responsive solo canoe that is great for day trips, poking around or just bettering your canoeing skills.
This strip built Razorbill has been the shop boat for several years. Used lightly by Al Bratton and maintained to take to shows. I am selling off a few of the shop boats to keep new and fresh ones in the display. I plan to building a shorter model to replace it. It is fast and fun to paddle in open water, it tracks very well, weighs 45lbs, and it still looks great!
This is a very good candidate for restoration. I would probably keep it if I didn't have 9 customer owned canoes in front of it. It has two small holes in the planking some splitting on the ends of the outwales. Seats need redone and the usual prep work for canvassing. Good winter project if you want to have a boat ready for spring!
This is a BN Morris canoe, 17 ft. It has stamped on 2 of the ribs Graves & Ramsdell. They ran Amusement parks in New Hampshire, This one looks like it might have been used for park guests at Pine Island Park.
This is a one of a kind HBGATES. It has been stored inside sense the day it was purchased, has never been in water or used. It is in new condition and it's historical and personal history is remarkable.
