Looking to buy a few paddles and portage pads if anyone has any. I am bringing in a group of 8 this fall and these would be the last few things I need to outfit the excursion.
As far as the paddles are concerned, I was hoping to pick up about 6 aluminum/plastic, bent shaft or straight, Carlisle paddles similar to the ones the outfitters rent. Don't necessarily need to be Carlisle but they are the ones I have seen. Essentially looking for something inexpensive and durable.
Also looking for about 3 pairs of clamp on block style, portage pads. Or one bolt on that would fit an Alumicraft canoe.
I would like to avoid shipping cost so would be able to pick up anywhere from Minneapolis area to Ely area.
GoNorth, are you around the cities? I would be happy to take the Carlisle off your hand and potentially the sawyer. Shoot me an email and we can set up a time that works for you. If you are closer to Ely, I will be up there the weekend of the 16th. email@example.com
Frenchy- email sent. And thank you and let me know what shipping is, as I would be happy to cover that.
