Hey folks this is related to my Stratton Lake thread. When we go there we'll need 3 canoes and I am trying to decide between bringing 3 of my own and whatever that entails, or renting 1 or 2 at Achray. I rented there last year but don't have a clear recollection of what kind of canoe it was. I know it was a park rental and not Algonquin Outfitters, so it is not Swift. I have a few pictures and it looks like it was an SP3 plastic maybe Scott on the side.

The portage into Stratton Lake is really short so maybe it won't matter if we have a crappy canoe.

Does anyone know what kind of canoes are there?

If need be I can borrow the Scouts' trailer and take 3 of my own canoes plus have lots of room for gear without having to try to cram it all into the Suburban, so maybe that's what I'll do anyway.

Better bring your own or go with the outfitters...

Now looping 3 threads into this :-)

Relating to my other thread here : http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtop ... 16&t=46931

What outfitters deliver to Achray? And would they have Prospector 17s? I guess I'd have to call to ask.

Do any of them have gear already at Achray?

I have rented from Algonquin Bound before so I will contact them and ask. Anyone else?
