    You don't need a boat for SK101, and it will help you select the right boat. It's basically a classroom setting. There may be some loaners available for SK102, but no commercial rentals. Go to the Chesapeake Paddlers Association web site for more information.

    Is there a good way to take SK101 and/or SK102 without my own boat? Are there rentals/loaners available at either?
