WEIGHT vs. THE RENTAL PRICE
Weight is an issue because you have eight kms of portaging. All of our canoes have deep dish yokes, and all of the portages have frequent canoe rests, but weight still makes quite a difference.

70 lbs in Fiberglass
60 lbs in Kevlar
54 lbs in Ultralight

CANOE RENTAL INCLUDES: 2 PFDs with whistles, 2 paddles, bow line, bailer, and a spare paddle for your group, and a throw bag.
A throw bag has buoyant heaving line that is thrown toward a person in the water for them to hold onto while you pull them alongside your boat. The throw bag keeps the rope from getting knotted and makes it easier to throw. it is for emergencies only-it is not to be uncoiled.
ALWAYS EMPTY THE BOAT BEFORE BRINGING IT UP ON SHORE
'Good canoeists always get their feet wet'.
REMEMBER* The easiest way to damage a boat is by dragging it up on shore or loading it on shore.
