White water canoe - Mad River ME - $500


condition: good
length overall (LOA): 15
make / manufacturer: Mad River
model name / number: ME
propulsion type: human
year manufactured: 1992

Up for sale is a restored banana boat. This thing is great on the rapids of the Rappahannock. It is quite long at 15ft, but is really easy to lean and turn because of how narrow it is and the rockered ends. I've had a blast catching eddies and shooting the Iron Ring rapid in this canoe for several years.

The hull is in good shape because it is royalex. It is over 25 years old, but I stripped it down to the hull once I bought it and replaced the gunnels, thwarts, end caps with current Mad River replacement parts, and added rigging. The boat will come with the saddle seat but not the air bags (they're kind of leaky anyway). I've had it stored either in the garage or under a tarp under the deck, and there is plenty of life left in this boat. I just need to make room for a family canoe since I have kids, now.

Here is some more information on the boat:
This site says you can run tandem in it, but I tried this with a buddy one year for the GRWCR and did not have a great time...
