  Our Bluewater tandem at 50# seems
  Posted by: ezwater on Mar-06-14 8:55 PM (EST)

light enough for portaging, and is certainly more rugged that true lightweights at 40 pounds or so.

If a tandem is under 50 pounds, the real questions about portaging are:

1. How much portaging have you done in the past? Did you do enough to sort out all the lifting, balance, and pain issues?

2. How much portaging have you done recently? If you're rather out of shape (as I am at 71), then you'd better carry the canoe around the block and do some things to get back in shape.
