If I were at Camp I'd have been too busy to see the ad for it. As it was, it was a mad dash from a friend's house in Olean to North Tonawanda in my ancient truck which already had two kayaks in it, but I came home with it:
IMG_20200724_150952825.jpg  A 1977 Alumacraft QT-17C. With two new wooden paddles, a cooler full of gear (Coleman Poly-Lite, blue), an anchor, a motor mount (which will get a flagpole), and paperwork for those numbers if I ever decide to put a motor on it. 
So, after putting it through the "sea trial" of paddling it out on Chautauqua Lake near Camp, I fitted it out and took it on a river trip last weekend. Here's a portrait:

Nothing quite like soloing a full size boat full of food and gear right?  I'll leave it with a panorama of sunrise from Mead Island on the Allegheny River. Thanks for looking!

Awesome canoe! Is that a B or D hanging on the back?

You can pack a lot of gear in that 17 footer. I recently got a 1959 Alumacraft CO-15 square stern canoe that I'm getting ready for duck hunting.

Nice looking canoe, Will.  On the other side of the coin, I have a boat I wouldn't mind getting rid of; it's an old, 11' aluminum rowboat.

Nice!  Looks like you have it trimmed just right for solo. Are those Kevlar strips along the bow bottom?

That's a great looking canoe. I have 3 canoes, but I haven't been able to get out yet this year. It's driving me nuts.

No pics of camp; Mead island is a public area and there was used tp all over the woods.
Bill, I don't know what the black stuff is exactly. Feels like textured leakproofing. The same stuff is in the bottom of the boat.
Toby, it's a 228B. It's the one I got a few months ago that already had clamp marks on it..

Is that the Mead Island with some tricky spots in the river? Paddling a 17 solo can be handful but you're makin' it look easy. Also, would be a great boat for multi day trips. Congrats and enjoy!

Great score, and a great time obviously had!

The ancient truck looks like a keeper too.
Nice pics, thanks for sharing.
