I am looking to buy a canoe for day trips on lakes and rivers. Our river has some rapids but nothing more than class II. I want it to be comfortable for two adults and one kid. I have been advised to get one made of "royalex." Mainly I am looking at Craig's list because it seems like a lot of folks buy canoes and then never use them and so used ones seem to be in good shape. Does anyone have any suggestions on size and make? Someone is selling a Mad River Canoe-16 ft. Explorer on Craig's list for $600 which seems like a good deal if it is in good shape.
