  Dont get misled by capacity in the OT
  Posted by: kayamedic on Jan-14-13 4:42 PM (EST)

1500 lbs should read more like 900 lbs. But that is seriously more than you need in the BWCA.

How young and strong are you? The OT Tripper is a fine canoe for big lakes, rivers and not so fun on portages.

I only know that Grummans last and are put together well. But 18 feet is a lot more Grumman than you might want to carry.

None of your choices are good for portaging. However what proportioh of canoe use will be for those BWCA trips? You can always get a Grumman or one of the others and rent a nice 45 lb kevlar in the BWCA.
