by the time you get to Mpls, your canoe skills will be up for anything farther downriver, and the river isn't very big for most of that first part. But, you can do a lot better than the two canoes that you mention. Buy a good quality used canoe, solo if you can find one or something like a royalex 16 ft. penobscot.
I once met an old lady while portaging my canoe through town who stopped and told me how she had canoed from Itasca to Minneapolis as a teenager.
A lot of people try it and don't complete it, but a lot more people think about it and never try it.
