M.A.C.K. Fest 2019 @ Iron Grille
Apr 12 – Apr 14 all day
M.A.C.K. Fest 2019 @ Iron Grille | Marmora | Ontario | Canada

Mackfest 2019 planning has started, this year’s lead is  Eric Chaplin, KWP’s club president.

Kawartha Whitewater Paddlers club hosts and organizes the Marmora Area Canoe and Kayak Festival (MACKfest), an annual event to celebrate the beginning of the whitewater paddling season. As spring arrives the snows of winter melt to swell the rivers in the basin known as the Lake Ontario Watershed. Many of the rivers and creeks are found in south central Ontario between Peterborough and Sharbot Lake along the Hwy. 7 corridor.

The quaint town of Marmora serves as Mackfest’s home base. Paddlers from novice to expert will find a river or playspot suited to their skills here. Visit the Rivers page to find a description of the whitewater sections. Join us at The Iron Grille Restaurant on Saturday morning, paddle the day away, then join us for a delicious buffet dinner, silent auction and a cozy bar to hang out in. Of course, there’s also always a campfire to gather around where you can catch up with river friends you probably haven’t seen for a while. On Sunday find yourself another river to explore. There are always paddlers around to answer any questions you may have about the local rivers to help you decide the best option for your paddling day.

All monies realized will be used towards the purchase of two defibrillators at a cost of $28,000. Defibrillation is a procedure used to treat life threatening conditions that affect the rhythm of the heart such as cardiac arrhythmia, ventricular fibrillation and pulseless ventricular tachycardia. This procedure involves the delivery of an electric shock to the heart which causes depolarization of the heart muscles and re-establishes normal conduction of the heart’s electrical impulse.Advent

Spring Used Canoe Sale @ Algonquin Outfitters Oxtongue Lake
May 11 all day

Where can I buy a good used canoe?

This question comes up more often than you might think.  Whether it’s the beginning of paddling season or the middle of winter, people always want to know where they can buy a good used canoe, and many of them turn to us as they know our rental fleet consists of some of the best canoes on the market.

The best time to look for a used canoe from Algonquin Outfitters or Swift is in the fall, starting in mid-September, and again in the Spring ring. It can be difficult to shop for canoes in the winter but we are always happy to do a bit of shoveling if the canoe-buying urge strikes you.

Every year we sell off a number of retired rental canoes that have seen several seasons of rental use and will always have scratches and patches on the hull. All of our canoes have been reconditioned to a “no leak” condition, some may even have had new paint jobs. All are a good value.

Most Kevlar models sell between $1000 and $2000 (about half to a third of their original retail price) and fiberglass models sell between $500 and $900. The most popular used models are Algonquin 16 & 17 and the Swift Kipawa 16’6″.  Please visit our Used Canoe page for a list of models currently available.

Estimated Price Ranges

•    Used fiberglass canoes $500-$900
•    Used Kevlar canoes $1500-$2500
•    Used plastic recreational kayaks $300-$700
•    Used touring kayaks $500-$1200
•    Used whitewater kayaks (call 1-866-KAYAKS-O)

The Elusive $300 Used Canoe

We do get a lot of calls from customers looking for the elusive $300 ultralight Kevlar canoe. Considering that most new Kevlar canoes cost $3000-$4000, you can just imagine what a used one valued at $300 would look like! One thing to consider is that usually the lower the price, the more TLC your used canoe will require (or the heavier it will be).
