I'm looking at purchasing my first canoe but with one huge problem. I live in an apt and have nowhere to store it. I can't justify spending the absurd amount at a storage facility. Are there any solutions out there? or by luck or chance someone in the Ottawa/West Gatineau/Arnprior/Renfrew area have some space to spare? The only other option I have is to store it back at my parents farm in Magnetawan which isn't exactly a quick drive to get it. Although my Dad would appreciate the new toy :lol:

There are a couple (at least) quite active canoe clubs in Ottawa, suggest you contact them.

I don't know if they have their own storage facility but if not perhaps a member could share a space in their garage.

Google "ottawa canoe club", you'll get three matches at the top of the page.

Have a look at the RA Center Canoe Camping Club and then from there figure out if you really want to buy a canoe or if you can get by using theirs.

consider buying a Pakcanoe? - mine is stored in my living room under a desk - no room in the garage where I have 5 boats - big duffle bag maybe 1.3 meters tall by 3/4 meter or so wide

Also - whereabouts in Ottawa do you live?

I might be able to find you a place to store it if you let the person use it.

What are you buying?
