1990 16' Coleman Ram-X flat-backed canoe, or "Scanoe". This boat can be paddled in the standard canoeing fashion or powered by a small gas or electric outboard motor (up to 5hp). It comes with three wooden paddles (basicly long, medium, and short lengths). The boat is of an extremely heavy-duty construction, with a "bulletproof" Ram-x thermomolded reinforced-plastic hull, plastic seats, aluminum and stainless frame members, and a sturdy aluminum outboard motor mount. It has a large passenger + cargo weight limit of either 660 lbs (nameplate label) or 740 lbs (user manual). We still have the user manual!
Interior beam width: 40"
Weight: About 80lbs
Condition: This boat is in great condition. It was only used about 10 times between 1990 and now !!! The boat was only paddled and never powered by outboard. It never hit anything like rocks etc at any significant speed. The Ram-X hull is in great shape. It has normal sand and rock scratches on the bottom, and some light oxidation/discoloration of the aluminum edges (although we've scrubbed them clean). No holes, cracks, leaks, etc. It was stored in a garage and has not been harmed by UV light (plastic is still the original, deep green color). Paddles are very nice, with no splits or rot, however the sealant has been worn off of the tips. Includes 4 high density foam cartop blocks and ceiling/rafter hanging storage rig.
These boats can hit some amazing speeds when fitted with an outboard. Here is a video of the same model of boat powered by 4hp outboard:
