My canoe is about 40 pounds and I carry it on a modified old frame backpack. That way I can also carry other things at the same time, and the canoe weight is distributed to the hip belt as well as the shoulder straps. I took out the top bar of the backpack and put in a short straight shaft with a little U shaped set of prongs on each side of the backpack. The prongs hold up the straight thwart of the canoe. I run a strap to the bottom of the backpack frame and the stern of the canoe, and then I can carry the canoe hands free except if I have to bend way down to get under something.
