I'm looking for a wooden canoe to rent for a Sebago (shoe co.) photo shoot in the Newport area on 10/5 or 10/6. We do not plan on putting it in the water. It can have a painted exterior, and should have all wood interior. Doesn't have to be new, but shouldn't be too beaten up. We can pay you to bring it to us, or we can pick it up. Thanks so much!

Hi Ann, I think I might have a boat for you, I will send you an email.
Hi Ann: One of the RICKA vendors who offers discounts to members is located in Foxborough, Ma.His business is Claude's Cycles and the phone # is 508-543-0490. They do have some beautiful Canadian built canoes and they may do transportation. You could call and negotiate a price. Otherwise I'm sure that there are outfitters in the NH area who would accomodate you. Thanks, Bill
I'm sorry I misread your message. I thought that you were doing a shoot in NH. You can try two other outfitters in the area who maybe able to help in the Newport area. One is Osprey Sea Kayak in Westport, ma and the other is The Kayak Center in Wickford,RI. They may know of people who own wooden canoes if they do not have access to one at their shop.
I sent Ann two pics of Will Conrad's Green restored boat. ( with Will's permission). I'm hoping she uses it. It is just like the picture she posted. It's such a gorgeous boat, I'd love for more people to see it! We'll see!!
