Mango canoe

Today (Sunday of Canada Day long weekend) we spontaneously decided to go buy a canoe and paddle it home. The two places to get canoes are about 10 km of paddling and 3-4 km of portaging through city streets. 10 minutes after entering the store, we left with our mango-coloured 16′ canoe.

We soon discovered that this is a terrible yoke with no curvature for shoulders.
