Here's mine. The day we picked her her up and probably the only picture I have of the canoe without scratches.

My favourite so far is Quinn's golf cart. What's the top speed on that bad boy?

recped, I like that rig. With a bit bigger canoe, the bike, trailer, and gear could all be loaded on board. Imagine the flexibility in planning. No need for loop routes to get back to the wheels, although single-carrying would likely be out of the question!

Oh it's not all that heavy as is shown here with a knupak type backpack holding it up as a promo for knupak when it was in business (does this count as a canoe atop a vehicle?):
Image

it is configured for a crew of 6, in single file, but is long enough so it could be altered to hold 7. I actually paddle another similar length voyageur that does have 7 inline seats
