Which brand of canoe is best ?

I need to move a few safes across the river, and want to be sure that all goes as planned.


Please discuss.

Get one of those tall trees on the west side of the state and hack it out with a home made ax.

The Indians did that successfully for many many years as did Lewis & Clark.

Proven technology so no way things could go wrong or anyone could fault you if it did

Polynesian canoe for sure. Go all Hawaii 5-0 theme song.

Polynesian means "multiple nesians", which is terrific because safes are heavy. One nesian couldnt handle the job.

Birch Bark and Pine Tar is the only way to go!

We are moving 2 safes across a river.

What part don't we get in today's political climate?

Grumman....aluminum......airplanes...aluminum van bodies.....also makes canoes. Pretty good ones too. Lots of canoe rentals use them,as they are pretty stout. Me...I got a Raddison Sportspal. 13 foot. I had a local sprayfoam guy gun the whole inside. Just like the Titanic..unsinkable....
Are your safes aluminum?

Don't do it brother, you'll never get it out of your head. Gordon Lightfoot is right up there with Terry Jacks for the the most diabolically clever earworm songs, impossible to remove once they start playing.

In this day and age when its not only encouraged, but celebrated, for people to decide they are really other things, YOU be the canoe. I think it will achieve your objective. Good luck.

Put them on pallets. Hire some illegal immigrants to tow them across. Blame all losses on them.
