but might I add some other choices?

Portage pack.. take a part double blade lashed to thwarts shafts of blade lifts the boat so your head does not hit the seat. A line to the rear and to the front thwart that allows you to walk hands down with one hand on the quick release buckle that joins the two halves of the line.

I tried that on the Harrington Brook to Lows portage.
