I am an aspiring angler who loves to fish during my free time. I have spent a good amount of my life floating on water, holding a rod and waiting for a catch. Now I want to level up my self as an angler. I am planning to purchase a canoe to support my hobby. I hope inflatable canoe will be within my budget since it cost around $500; at least that's what I heard.
Here are my requirements
It should last long Hull should be strong, I want to take my kids with me occasionally
Should support rod holders Air pump (Optional)
Capacity: 3 adults should be able to sit comfortably
Mounting points for a trolling-motor-mount (optional)
I am not sure whether to buy a used boat or a new one. I haven't owned a kayak or canoe ever before. So, I lack technical knowledge. I don't know how to maintain it either. But, I want to own one as soon as possible because I have promised my kids that we will go to Algonquin Park for fishing at the end of this month.
So, please help me on how to buy a good canoe that meets my requirements.
