My family and I have been doing multi-night river trips for over 15 years and until 5 years ago I always borrowed or rented my canoe. After 10 years of experience I knew exactly what I wanted to buy and it was the Old Town Charles River RX. It is the perfect size for all my gear, handles the weight plus two paddlers with ease.

I have been using this canoe for the last 5 years and have never regretted it once. I fully expect it to last me as long as I do.
