|Seller Notes:||“Needs some TLC!”|
I was given this canoe years ago for part payment of work from a Canadian guy,
I repaired it primed and painted it and used it a few times, it paddles really well!
It is 3.4 M long, 300mm high, 900mm wide, the top hole is 1.65M long and 600mm wide, it weighs a lot.
The front has a ballast compartment I think? With an brass screw on bung.
It then sat unused for a couple of years, and was converted in a weekend as an " uncle/nephew" project...mission to make it pedal powered!
It was a complete success and moved under pedal power on the Sunday afternoon!
The gearing was not perfect....flat out pedaling resulted in a leisurely pace!
The next plan was taller gearing or a mower engine!, None of that happened, so now is clear out time.
Could easily be put back to original and re-painted in a day, or add a mower engine....
The chain is now rusty and needs freeing or replaced, and the rudder control rod is rusted.
Sold as is in the pictures, no paddles, no ladders!
Cash on pick up preferred!
Located 1:40 south of Brisbane CBD.
Pick up or I can drop at a freight yard.
Bid to buy, no reserve!
