    To offset the important but more serious conversation happening at ( about promoting WCHA and the possible decline in people interested in canoes...

    ... and in the spirit of the lighthearted thread showing cars and trucks wearing canoes as "hats" ( ...

    I am starting this thread to forever document the things that people are willing to trade just to own a canoe! :)

    If he eats moles, we might be able to make a deal.

    Looks very tasty...
    Gil, I'll trade you a bucket of voles.......

    All right Gil, I was afraid that wasn't enough. I'll sweeten the deal with a bunch of chipmunks and a couple red squirrels.

    Well, seeing the direction this conversation is headed there might then be some interest in...

    Submission #2: A backyard ceramic cooker!

    ... one garage space-taker-upper for another. Seems like a straightforward deal (as long as you don't own a Pelican canoe)!

    I'm seeing a trend, so anyone who owns a lot of canoes and wants to get into raising animals may be in luck!

    ... though how a canoe can be lumped into the same category as a "rusty tractor" or "stuff you would find hanging on a Crackle Barrel restaurant ceiling" is beyond me. :(

    I'd trade my canoe/s for that green stuff.
    Or maybe a good Lund fishing boat, or maybe a pistol or shotgun.
    But looking to decrease projects and increase time having fun.

    OU/Pump/Semi or Single? 12/16/20. Smooth or rifled etc. List the canoes to start the offers.;)

    It's easy to free up time if you stop mowing, splitting, stacking, whacking.....all that stuff that ends in ing.

    A nice semi in 20 ga would be nice, the trouble is the only canoe on my list of "to part with" is a Willits.
    I'd need a nice 16' Lund and 35 for that. Of maybe a older pontoon, that's what the wife wants.

    I'm not too bad on the "ing" stuff, last year only cut the grass 4-5 times at 1 1/4 hr each time.

    Hmmm...yeah that's going to be a Benelli Performance shop custom and a Weatherby 181 Deluxe and an SX4 tossed in. Not looking too promising. I don't know anyone that has those to swap.

    Submission #4: A grappling dummy. Who knew?

    ... could also provide 50 pounds of quiet, paddling companionship if you don't feel like canoeing alone...

    I rode an old loop seat saddle from around 1900 for years. It finally wore and was not really safe so I traded it for a 16 foot canoe built over on the West Coast, with wood interior and fiberglass exterior. I sold it a long time ago for $600.
