For Sale Venture Ottowa £400 Oxford

Post by HWalker » Tue Apr 11, 2017 9:06 am

Beautiful Venture Ottowa for sale in Oxford, currently fitted with kneeling thwart but will supply original seat if people prefer (the kneeling thwart allows larger feet to fit in the boat when kneeling and lowers the paddler's weight making the canoe a lot more stable). No deep scratches, usual wear and tear from gentle club use- hasn't really been used on whitewater. I have links to Cambridgeshire and we have club members going to Wales, Northampton and Lee Valley on a regular basis so may be able to meet somewhere if Oxford is a problem.

Makes a lovely stable, manoeuvrable, easy to paddle solo boat. It paddles beautifully in a straight line, if I didn't already have a growing collection of boats and nowhere to store them, I would be buying it myself!!!

I can't work out how to put pictures on this :S but I have some so please do get in touch if you want to see it.

Makers Write Up

The Ottawa by Venture Canoes is a modern adaptation of a classic design of canoe designed specifically for lighter loads and so makes an ideal solo canoe for use on flat water and gentle moving water.

The small size and narrow width of the Ottawa allow a more efficient vertical stroke to be used. Its great initial and secondary stability make it a fine confidence builder for those new to a single blade while the more advanced paddler will get plenty of enjoyment from its effortless maneuverability and ease of handling on and off the water.

Standard Features
Triple layer polyethylene construction
Tough P.U. Gunwales
Tough molded end decks and handles
One wood web seat fitted
One Wood thwart fitted
