Hello, Fellow Paddlers,
Van, Sheila and Mark are happy to announce that after 28 years of running Bosman’s Pine River Canoe Rental we sold the business.
Rylie Gates has purchased the rental and is renaming it
Rylie has over 17 years of experience running rentals on the Pine and has big plans for the future. We are pleased he purchased the business and are confident in his ability to meet and exceed your needs and expectations going forward. Some of you may even recognize him and his dog, Jeffo , from your time at the landings.
Van and Sheila will continue to handle reservations for the 2024 season until Rylie takes over in the spring. Please join us in welcoming Rylie by giving us a call at 877-622-6637 to make your summer reservation.
Thank you for all of your support over the years and maybe we will see you on the river!
Van, Sheila and Mark Bosman
