Tote 'n Boat
Made for the sportsman who wants to carry his canoe in the trunk of a car, this 32-pound foldable craft is a flat sheet of polypropylene, packed into a 14x48-inch carrier, that transforms into a 91/2-foot-long canoe in 10 steps (condensed below). It can handle a 2-horsepower motor and haul up to 450 pounds. It's not meant for whitewater, but the Tote is perfect for floating a beaver drainage or other still waters. $300; 800-500-9157; www.tucktech.com
