Possible, if you can find one used, or if you want to build one. But for that price range a canoe is more likely. And canoe'ing those lakes is pretty easy on most days. (Except maybe Lake George or Lake Champlain which being larger can kick up a bit of waves.) -Gary-

Bob - I'd invite you to check out my rigs to convert a canoe or skiff into a sculling boat. My website is http://www.rowingrigs.com/. This may be just the economical set-up you need. Let me know if you have any questions.

Take care,
