Equipment Resources

Other providers are encouraged to contact us to be listed here.  The list below is by no means complete, but is intended to help visitors know what’s available as well as potential costs.  A modern boat and paddle, if well cared for, will last for decades if not a lifetime of use.  (Some of our club boats are over 30 years old.)
