Remember,you will need a place to store the composite canoes out of the sun lite.
Aluminum doesnt mind being stored outside.
I can carry my 18 foot grumman quiet far but if I get that wierd feeling in my shoulder I can barely get it up on my shoulders.
I did a few portages with a kevlar Scott canoe this past summer, and even with the pain in the shoulder I could do it by myself no problem.
My suggestion is stay in your buget at home and rent a canoe you dream about owning for the trip.
Keep the open side up!
