If you are an American now may be the best time ever to consider buying a Canadian canoe due to exchange rates with up to a 40% variance. Usually vintage canoes are about the same price north or south of the border but not anymore. About $1700 USD, for example, will buy you a $2500 canoe in Canadian. There are other examples available. A "canoe" search at www.usedkamloops.com shows pricing based on about a 30% variance but depending on the day they could cost a lot less in USD. These include manufactures such as Chestnut, Greenwood, Langford and Huron.
