Christmas Grand Canyon Self Support Kayak Trip - Need Boat and advice!

Hey guys, I'm going down the Grand on Dec. 19th on a self support trip and I was wondering if anyone in the Denver area had an expedition boat (Remix XP, Pyr. Fusion, Green Boat etc) that I could borrow/rent for 10 days.

I'm also open to any pearls of wisdom you might have for a first timer!

Get several balaclavas. I pretty much wore them (wool on the water, fleece in camp) my whole trip this past January.

I'd give confluence kayaks a ring to see what their rental fleet has for boats you mentioned.
