WTB 12-14ft kevlar canoe, tunnel or flat hull design

If anyone is looking to sell a 12-14ft flat bottom or tunnel hull carbon canoe, please pm me. I live in south florida. Preferably a 14ft wenonah fisherman or 14 indian river flat back.

    FYI

    I have a kevlar Weenonah fisherman (not for sale), I don't think they have a flat bottom or tunnel hull model.

    The Wenonah will be $ several thousand and the Indian river $ several hundred dollars.

    See link for explanation. Flat bottoms/tunnel bottoms - not good.

    Mine feels a little sensitive (initial stability) but final stability is great.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess for mangrove hopping in flat water the flat bottom is fine, any chop your overboard. Huge difference in price as you said however.

    I also have a Indian River "tunnel hull" that we use for duck hunting that I forgot to mention. I got it from a friend who used it to fly fish out of (standing up) on inshore waters on the east coast. It worked great. I think you will be fine with flat or tunnel as long as you know the limits of stability. I have never had an issue with mine, and you can stand and cast without it twitching around.

    I bet with a little patience you can find one used. New they are not all that much.

    Good luck!
