1977 manufacture, single owner, outstanding condition. I purchased this canoe directly from Joe and Nora Seliga in Ely, Minnesota (I have the original receipt). The boat is all original except for an additional layer of paint.

Dan L., who maintains the Seliga build list, closely evaluated pictures of the canoe and said, "You have a very nice, well cared for canoe." The canoe has been stored inside, with very low usage the past 40 years. It was used primarily in the BWCA of northern MN ~ 3 times/year for about 4-5 years, where the silence of the water sliding past and the continuing glide of the canoe after each stroke enhanced the feel of tranquility and timelessness of that region of the country. Joe's craftsmanship is awesome! The boat is a joy to experience and use!

The canoe was always supported by the water before entry of gear or people. The boat was rinsed at the end of each paddling day and at the end of each trip.

There is a business that transports canoes/kayaks/crew shells across the country if transport is required. If you can be flexible with the schedule, the price has been described as very good.

Please email me to discuss...
