    Cheap is a relative term . Does it have to meet any other requirements?

    Ours was the marsh country, down by the river, within, as the river wound, twenty miles of the sea.

    I would like a 16 footer really but a solo sized one would do. Its to be used with the Army Cadet Force so it has to be fairly modern and servicable.

    Hi, I have a 15.5ft pelican for sale. It's in good condition save for some dragging marks on the bottom. It comes with two wooden paddles. I'm looking for around 275 or near offer. I'm based in Chester.

    It is a seperate skin that is clamped in by the seat and rubbing strip fixings. It is designed to retain air to aid in bouyancy should the water end up on the inside of the canoe!!

    I think they are fitted to so that it can be certified as ok for use in coastal waters. (see photo of specification plate)

    The liner is easily removed should you wish to.

    Regards,

    There are oval shaped, concave mouldings around the seating areas where your knees go, and because there is an air gap between the liner and the hull of the canoe, they flex and actually give more comfort than if you were kneeling directly on the hull.

    Hope this helps,

    Can pm you a number if you want to ring in the day.
