Rated 5 out of 5 by blrgz Great Value & Quality Have been out on this Scanoe several times now and am very pleased. Great square stern for the money and very durable. Just throw your gear in the canoe and pull it down to the lake. I bought a canoe cart as well but find I don't use it that often as I just drag the canoe easy enough. I am 6' and 220lbs. The kids have also pulled it down on their own. Hull in great shape and shows light surface scratches only. On the water it is stable for a canoe and best in calm water like most canoes.. I have been out with my 2 older teenagers, on my own, the kids on their own and loaded up with lots of gear and with nothing but life jackets and a paddle - it has performed well all the time. I have not had any rivet issues and have had lots of weight in the boat while portaging it. I am not worried about the rivets if they do go. It is a very easy & cheap fix, there really is very little if anything that can go wrong with this canoe. Should last for many years of fun. Also, I use a 30 lb thrust trolling motor with a 35 amp 12v agm cell (wheelchair battery) and even fully loaded (3 large people, cooler, rods, radio, life jackets, motor, battery, bait, oars (just in case), etc etc.) it moves us along great and have been out all day without running the battery down. I don't run it on max very often though and do a lot of coasting. Recommended. July 5, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by maeistero can't haul on top of truck the black plastic held on by four rivets just rips off, no real way to secure it. June 7, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by ace good boat This is a good boat. I bought and tested in today works great. The only thing I have against it is the length. I'm 6'3" so its a little "little" cramped. But I am 6'3" I prolly should have got a 15' canoe. Haven't tried the motor mount yet but it definatly feels very sturdy and solid. Overall for the price there is no way you could do better without spending atleast 200 more. May 23, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy Momma River water here I come! The Coleman Scanoe Canoe is a perfect 40th birthday present for our son. Excellent made and we know he will love it. April 19, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by R Richards No Problems Here No rivet problems. Have had two seasons with it so far and love it. Have a 40 lb motor on it and it's great fun. Light weight enough to drag around by myself and I've gotten two adults, two small kids in. Fun. Get one. If there's some kind off rivet issue, well, just return it for another one. February 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Aude Get what yoiu pay for. Bought this canoe even after reading the online reviews and saw that the rivets tend to come out. First time to the river and the rivets came out of the front of the canoe. I choose to drill out the rivets and insert stainless steel bolts and locking nuts. Works fine. I would still buy this canoe again. Dollar to value its still a good buy. Yes you may need to modify it but you get what you pay for most of the time. September 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by wimpster scanoe review nice product very stable for a canoe our children love it September 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Kirk Good Bang For The Buck Bought this at our local Dicks on sale during boat week. For beating and banging down the Shenandoah River it works perfect. Wish the front seat was moved back about 6 more inches for a little more leg room, wish the transom was wider and wish the seats had backrests but for the price I paid for it I'm very happy. This canoe is going to live a very hard life over the years... time will tell but so far we've been beating the heck out of it, not flipped it and have not had one minutes problem with it. We also drag it fully loaded including battery and motor uphill and around portage paths... just wrap a rope around you and your buddies waste and off you go. Thanks for offering this canoe at a great sale price. If the price hadn't been so cheap I would have bought a kayak and had to leave most of my gear and buddies setting at home. Its been a fish catching machine for us. July 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Uriah Still the best buy for a new squareback Coleman (or rather Pelican to start with, but the manufacturer has changed) was about the only manufacturer of affordable squareback canoes years ago (70s) with the RAM-X Scanoe and this is the modern version of it. The new one is a bit flimsyier then the older ones but still servicable. I think for a few hundred more you can get a superior Old Town squareback, but nobody has ANYTHING for around 400 bucks (new) to compete with this. If you take care of your Scanoe it will last for decades. You might have to work on it from time to time but that can be said of anything. These things are not lightweight and smaller people might have a problem portaging them but it's a SQUAREBACK designed for a small outboard or trolling motor. It's also fairly large, not like a smaller trapper model. I've used mine for river cruising, fishing, duck hunting, hauled a deer in it a time or two while hunting and it's did it just fine. This is a CANOE and not the swiftest or most stable of craft. It's not pretty. It's under 400 bucks. Nessmuk would hate this Scanoe. Coleman for the most part has always made (or had made in this case) affordable outdoor gear for the masses. If you use this, it's gonna get scratched, it'll show signs of use soon. Mine looks much older and battleworn then it really is, but so far it hasn't sank or let me down in any way. I don't cringe when I hit the occasional rock like i would in my much more expensive canoe. I use this enough to where if I got a new one every single year, I'd still be money ahead over something costing much more. Like for fishing, I usually run upriver about as far as my battery will last on the trolling motor (and I use a small 55lb thrust like a lot of you do) and drift/paddle back down to the launch. If I'm somewhere where I know I'll have to portage alot, I ditch the battery/motor to make it easier to drag/carry till I'm back in water. This isn't rocket science people. With easy cruising (and a large battery) I've went almost 20 miles on a charge. If I feel aggressive I'm lucky to go 5. I have a ladder rack over the topper on my truck and it's easy for me to load myself but I've also stuck it (tied down of course) in the back of a small pickup with a flag on what's sticking out. If I'm going to be in choppy water (lake on a windy day) I use a pair of outriggers on it like I would with any canoe. No, they don't look cool, but they'll help keep you from fishing your gear out of the lake. While I miss my bigger watercraft, this was cheap to buy and cheap to operate not to mention I don't have a problem storing it or have to use a trailer. I can haul it with almost anything and a bit of rigging. No, it's not the best canoe out there (and never has been) but again for what you can buy these things for new, they really have little competition. These are also a great first canoe. If you take reasonable care of it (and sell it the right time of year) you won't lose much money on it when you upgrade to something nicer for a bunch more money. If you only go out a few times a year you'll likely be happy with it for years to come, well, I'm been using Scanoes for over 30 years now. July 14, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Scott It's cheap! (and that's why I like it.) I picked up the Scanoe for basic fishing and to get an idea if I would go to the river enough to warrant forking out big $$ on a boat. For a little over $600 I was able to have the Scanoe out on the river, fully functional with a trolling motor and properly registered. (Not including cost of marine battery, which I already had.) Right off the bat, it's cheaply made. I bought it on sale after spending a good year reading all the reviews and looking at various models. The deciding factor was price and, "It's good enough." The bad: It's ugly -- I scratched the plastic long before ever getting it to the river. It's unwieldy out of the water. With two people it's a piece of cake. For solo loading, there's a bit of a learning curve. (hence the scratches.) The transom is plastic. When I put the trolling motor on full speed I can actually see the plastic bending. (maybe almost full speed is good enough...). It's a canoe, not a bass boat. If you forget that, you might go swimming. It's good for CALM water only. Dealing with speed boat wakes can be an uncomfortable experience and you couldn't pay me enough to take this out on choppy waters. Now that's out of the way... I love this canoe. I can load it up in just a few minutes and be on my way. I configured it with a 55# thrust Minn-Kota Endura transom mount motor with an extended handle. (That motor is a bit heavy for the Scanoe with me sitting in the back as well, but I'm happy with it. I'm about 180 pounds if that helps.) I altered an old set of jumper cables so that I could place the battery in the front of the craft -- Coleman or Minn-Kota could do well selling an extension kit for the battery wires. The trolling motor moves the canoe along faster than I could ever paddle it, but it's still a trolling motor so it's not going to be fast. The canoe is stable enough if you respect the fact that it is a canoe. (There are more stable canoes out there, but not in this price range.) The weight is about 85 pounds and it's awkward to move around on my own. I may make some alterations to make it easier to carry. The seats are hard plastic so it's worthwhile to take some kind of pad if your going to be in it for any length of time. I'm not crazy about the cup holders. Real cup holders and rod holders are going to be a must. Some other minor alterations will be in order later. Recently, I bought a Hummingbird 110 fish finder based on the ease of use with canoes. I'll do a review on that after using it enough to be able to give a good opinion. Nevada specific info: Something important to understand is that you will need to get the boat registered with NV Department of Wildlife to be able to use it with a motor here. (Make sure you have all the documents you need when you buy the boat. There is a manufacturer's statement of origin that you will need along with your receipt, and you will have to take to canoe to NDoW.) That was about $55. I would recommend the Scanoe for use on the Colorado River in good weather, but not for Lake Mead except very near shore in exceptionally calm weather. July 12, 2013
