Do you know what sections you are thinking about paddling and at what time of year?
I have done lots of sections in a Wenonah ultralite but bought a royalex boat for some of the river sections. Given normal water sections there are some long stretches you could do in your canoe If you are planning on including the lower Saranac River, Missisquoi, Clyde, Lower Nulhegan, or Upper Ammonoosuc you should seriously consider royalex. The section from Old Forge to Union Falls, Errol to Rangeley, or Jackman to Chamberlain Lake and possibly to Fort Kent are do-able in a ultralite.
