I have sold my 17 Ft. aluminum canoe, but kept the 12' solo canoe and ordered a 10 ft SOT which I will rig for fishing, I believe I can carry it in the bed of my truck tilted over the tailgate while hooked to the TT if not I will make a rack for it to go on top of the truck. When the DW goes we always take the boat and she pulls it with her PU. The SOT it is light enough for me to handle alone (only 52 LBS) and lately I end up camping with one of our chihuahua (Pebbles) . I have had several river yaks, but they were not fun for fishing as my knees are pretty bad after 75 years of mis -use and do not bend as well as they once did (neither does the rest of me). I figure I can also use it for hunting during the season too, less walking in the swamps I hunt in.
