Wanting To Rent A Canoe

Recommended Posts

  • Members

Were can I rent, borrow, barter, or trade for a cheap canoe? I am not wanting to know of rental/float company that drops you off five miles up river with a bunch of drunks. What I am looking is some to borrow or rent a canoe from to go put in when and were I want and go and stay ad long as I want even overnight. I would even be up for a shared float your canoe and can use my truck to haul or park at the take out. I would also be interested in barring for work or labor for use or ownership. I would even be willing to trade my extra deer rifle for the right one.

No better place to start than craigslist...

Don't think you'll have much luck with the borrowing or renting of people's personal canoes. I know I wouldn't go for that. You can get a used up beater that still floats for pretty cheap.

I understand your request completely!! The best way to fish/float is to put on earlier than the outfitters are willing as well as at accesses that the outfitters don't go to..

I tell ya what ya do..

You buddy up to one of these guys that lives close to the river and owns the type of craft you want access to.. And I don't mean wine em and dine em, I mean actually befriend them. Then present them with this same request...

Without a solid friendship I wouldn't be willing to loan my (kinda nice) canoe or John boat to anyone, even if they seem like good folk... Just too much responsibility and I'd feel like a jerk if something happened and I had to hold your feet to the fire to repair the problem.. All this could be overcome with a good friendship, even an online friendship...

So where are you from, BM?

Another option is to put racks on your vehicle and find an outfitter that will rent to you. haul it to your choice of put

check out water hikers in ozark mo they rent canoe's and kayak's and you take it to your spot and then take it back and im sure they will do a two day rental and they are the best bet for rentals like that

if every body had a pole and a fish on the line there would never be a war
