We at Fort Noble are proud to be able to offer you the same Great canoes that we use in our Treks.
These canoes are manufactured in Marathon, New York at Marathon Boat Works. They are a Super, well proven canoe. They ARE the Grumman Canoes, complete with the "G" in the kick-plates.
After we sorted out all of the hoopla about the new plastics and new materials and new designs and the fancy marketing campaigns that are designed to put their products in a better light compared to Aluminum Canoes, we realized that they were just attacking the product that they felt was superior.
These were great canoes when I was a kid and they still are. We use these boats hard and at the end of the day, I know that I can count on them. They have proven to be reliable, easy to paddle, easy on the Carries, great handling for all skill levels, stable and safe. I hope that you will take the time to look through the following information about Grumman Canoes, then give me a call. We'll get you set up with your canoe, or if you would like, book a trek so you can get some real field experience with these great boats instead of a ten minute paddle around a puddle....
It won't wear out.
It won't split or crack.
It won't sag, it won't sink.
It'll be your best friend. Eager, tough, loyal, fearless, forgiving. It'll take you to hell and back. The name has changed, but the canoe hasn't. It's still the same canoe with the famous heritage of airframe technology. Still the toughest quality standards on the water, and still with the lifetime warranty on punctures.
|Built to last.
All models feature .060" aluminum deck caps and .080" stem caps with special T-6 alumilite finish rivets for top strength. A special sealant ensures long lasting watertightness.
Formed .062" aluminum thwarts are secured with marine grade stainless steel bolts. Close, precision riveting ties gunnels, skin and thwarts together for superior strength.
Grumman's standard flat water keel is designed to make paddling easier and keep your canoe "on track." The special "Bulb T" keel on Grumman's 19 ft. Square Stern and Sportboat makes larger canoes stiffer and stronger. Both keels are made of tough, solid aluminum extrusions.
The shallow draft keel has an inner keelson of rugged-strength extruded aluminum made for fast maneuvering through rock bottom whitewater rivers. The shallow draft keel is available on G-1750CSK double-enders.
