Restored 1984 Old Town Ranger 17ft Royalex canoe. Before you could buy a Kevlar canoe, there was Royalex. This boat is nearly indestructible. I stripped all the original woodwork from the hull and replaced/rebuilt 99% of it with new ash gunwales, thwarts, and mahogany deck plates. The seats are also made of mahogany and woven seatbelt material. I was able to salvage and reuse one of the thwarts and some of the original seat hardware to add a little original character back.
The hull is in great shape for its age. There are no existing holes or repairs and feels as strong as ever.
I bought the boat about three years ago. I have taken my wife and kids (2 and 4) on Harrods Creek a handful of times. My wife has decided that she would rather have kayaks so this has been hanging in my garage unused for the past year. It is time for me to accept the inevitable and move on. Paddles will go with the boat.
My number is from western KY, but I am in La Grange.
