I've haven't seen so many open whitewater canoes in our yard for years! It was very exciting yesterday when the Bell Canoe truck and trailer arrived yesterday, loaded with models like the Ocoee, Prodigy, Prodigy X and Nexus. The Nexus is even rigged with the triple saddle system, enabling it to be paddled as a solo or tandem (or triple??? I'm not so sure about that) canoe. Some of these canoes are for sale, some for rent - stay tuned for details.
Ontario whitewater enthusiasts will be able to try out all of these models at the upcoming PalmerFest and Single Blade Symposium, at Palmer Rapids, May 21-22. Algonquin Outfitters will have a booth there, with lots of great deals on paddles, used kayaks and more!
More Bell boats are coming later. Their Kevlar touring canoes are among the lightest in the industry - we will offer them in our "Featherweight" rental category and have them for sale at the Huntsville store..
Speaking of new rental canoes, we are making a substantial investment in new Swift canoes for our fleet this year. Look for brand new versions of our most popular rental models like the Kipawa, Algonquin and Winisk.
