Old Town Penobscot 17 Canoe For Sale... SOLD!

We're selling our lightly-used Old Town Penobscot 17 canoe. Though we bought it with grand intentions, it's only been in the water three times (and two of those times were at Holmes Lake, so it hasn't been extreme paddling whatsoever).
The Penobscot 17 is a 17-foot long molded Royalex canoe from Old Town's premier tripping/expedition line. The boat is renowned for its easy paddling and handling, as well as its ability to carry up to a 1,200 lb payload.
While current Penobscot 17 canoes (now called the Penobscot 17 RX) include inferior webbed seats, this boat features comfortable, stylish cane seats and an ash thwart and yoke. All wood is in top-notch condition.

The canoe has a few minor surface scratches from transit, but nothing that in any way compromises its water worthiness.
The package also includes two Old Town wood paddles and three PFDs (two size adult large, one adult small)

MSRP for the canoe alone is $1,599.99. For the entire package (canoe, paddles and PFDs), we are asking $800 plus any applicable shipping charges. Please note: due to the challenge of shipping such a large, heavy item, we are strongly looking for a local buyer, or someone who can travel to pick it up.

Questions? Interested  in purchasing? Please contact Matt at mattgersib at gmail dot com, or 402-314-2150.

Thanks for looking,

I forgot to mention... The canoe will also come with foam blocks to allow it to be carried on-top of most cars, along with the necessary straps to secure it... It's a full-on drive away package.

Thanks again for looking.

Somebody called me yesterday and tried to leave a message with their phone number, but the number got cut off, so I won't be able to call back. If you are interested in chatting, please call back.
