...hmmmm, I've never heard of those, but then again, I'm not a canoeist. :)
Would you happen to know how long (or tall) they come, also approximate
diameters and mouth opening size? A 16" tall "storage jar" with a 6.25"
diameter could hold a 16x20 sheet of paper. ...that's a pretty big
storage jar! ...I'll check into it though. Thanks!
