Anyone know anything about "Portage"? Looking specifically at this one for a friend

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/it ... 381527637/

But our Scout troop also has an older "Portage" canoe that is one of our better canoes actually.

Can't find any info on google about who made them, when, etc.

Looks like a Frontiersman-style canoe with a keel. Heavy and slow but can carry a huge load. Lots of these boats are avaialble on craigslist/kijiji. A fair price is under $400. It can serve as a first canoe before you know better.

Yeah no question they are not bad canoes - not fantastic either but not bad.

I'm just wondering about the "Portage" brand and where they are made and by whom.
