This is a ways away on the Mason-Dixon for most Canadian buyers, but it is a canoe that belongs on a big north-country river.

http://www.esquif.com/en/touring/miramichi/

Very little used, in excellent condition inside and out. 20’ long, 40” wide, 16” deep, 3 ½” of symmetrical rocker. 110lbs outfitted weight on the hanging shop scale.

Old Town stopped making the 20 foot XL Tripper a few years before Royalex disappeared, so the Miramichi is the last of the RX 20 footers. Motor upwind and sail downwind, save the precious petrol.

Esquif builds an exceptionally rugged expedition tripping canoe; machine screw and flange washer wood carry thwarts inset in the molded deck plate carry handles, and the aluminum inserts in the vinyl gunwales are a full square box, not just an aluminum L. Even the vinyl deck plates with recessed ash carry handles have 12 pop rivets each through the inwale, not just 6 or 8 as usual. Little sturdy touches.

Fully outfitted for expedition tripping:
ED’s Canoe Extreme Duty wide seat on truss drops if a center passenger is aboard
Double-hung sculpted yoke
Webbing tie downs (26 total) on machine screw ends
Bow utility platform with bungees, compass hooks, and Scotty rod base
Full-sized (17 square foot) Spirit Sail
Dynel, graphite powder and G/flex skid plates
Custom TIG welded, adjustable height (long or short shaft) side motor mount for gas or electric motor
Retractable 20” x 13” Spring Creek leeboard if you decide to use an upwind sail. Handy with a motor at times too.
Wheel-a-Weigh heavy duty dingy/boat cart with 30 inch wide bunks

$1600 USD for the full kit
(Calculated at 2/3 of what the canoe cost in 2006, 1/3 of what the accessories then cost)
