As you may recall, one of the purposes for having a square trailer instead of a teardrop shape was so I could put a canoe on top. With a couple of additional 2×4’s up top, it worked great! It was nice to get out in the canoe again – it has been at least a year because I didn’t want to try and take the canoe on top of the car. Turns out the trailer was great – it was easy to slide the canoe right up from the back. I used to carry the canoe on my SUV, and I had to first attach some carrier bars (I didn’t want a permanent something on top of the car), then the canoe. It took half an hour and I usually dropped the canoe on the SUV at least once. This was much better!
Here are a couple of pictures from canoeing at Lum’s Pond State Park in Delaware. I have this weird rig that can be used to row a canoe. It’s fun and is an easier way for one person to paddle a two-person canoe. Some kid asked his father, “Daddy, why is that guy going backwards?” I guess that’s just par for the course with me 😉
