Lifting Boundary Waters Canoes for Women

Women can easily lift Boundary Waters Canoes. Nancy Piragis illustrates just how easy it is for women and those with bad backs to lift a Wenonah Minnesota II up on your shoulders. Start with the canoe on your quads and using both hands on opposite sides of the canoe, flip it/roll it up onto your shoulders resting the horseshoe yoke around your neck. Kevlar canoes commonly weigh 44 - 48 lbs and there is no reason that women in average physical shape shouldn't be able to lift a one with this technique.
