Dear Paddling Friends,

After 15 years of owning and operating Bert's Boats I have decided it is time to retire. I will be retiring from running Bert's Boats but for me that means more time to do the thing I love - paddle.

Thank you, to each of you, for all of your patronage over the years. It has been a pleasure serving you, meeting you, seeing your families grow and watching as you learned to love the sport.

I will still be offering canoe and kayak repairs and will be operating Bert's Transportation - please reach out at 802-644-8189.

While I am no longer running tours or renting boats, I do highly recommend my friends Bronwyn and Dean at Vermont Canoe and Kayak. You can call them at 802-644-8336 or email them at

The years went by faster than ever and I will miss it and you all very much.

Keep paddling - it's good for your core.

Thank you and see you on the river,
