This beauty is sitting at the 6th Portage on the Wanipigow River. It was there last August and still there this year. We had a closer look beyond the hole in the bottom to find massive gel coat cracking everywhere, the sponsons are molded in, might be foam filled, dunno. It has alum gunwales and seats and weighs a ton.

Label says it is a Dolphin, made in Winnipeg. Looks like a bottle nose dolphin really.

We thought of going up and fixing her but it would be a moose to portage, but would make a great barge. It does make a good stove stand.

I like canoes, but:

1. They are tippy
2. They don't go straight.

Looks like the folks at Dolphin have solved these problems with their sponsons and keel. At least it is red.
