For what it's worth, I'm the proud and satisfied owner of a Bell Northstar and can't recommend it too much. It's a wonderful boat. I also installed a kneeling thwart in it and have paddled it solo...

Where does Bell Bucktail Fall?

So based on your list Charley, Bell's Bucktail misses the cut. Can you offer any specifics about its features that leave it below the top group? I should say that I'm a satisfied Bucktail paddler,...

Clear to Oswegotchie

Anyone have any thoughts or experience with trying to get from Clear with a pack canoe to the Oswegotchie. I think a Ranger once told me that there was a trail going that way in the 30's-40's but...

Correct me if I'm wrong, but you're planning on making a Knupack style portage pack, right? What are you going to use to create the carrier that'll support the canoe and hook onto the...

Aqua Mira Drops

I've recently converted over from a filter (PUR hiker) that I used with no problems for many years to a Steri Pen. Have only used it on one trip so far, and it worked fine, but don't have enough...
