Thanks in advance,
I am a kayaker, rafter and open boater.
I have one of the big recretech fire pans for the raft and it is big time heavy. It does the job just weights a ton! Looking for lighter weight fire pan, I purchased one of the partner steel mini pans as well. It works but balancing it on stones is required to get it off the ground and is sketchy at best. I like it, but the version I have is rusting big time.
I am getting ready for a canoe trip and needed a fire pan for exactly the same reasons you mention.
I just purchased a firepan made by Sandbar Manufacturing just for my canoe trips. I suspect I will end up taking it on most of my raft trips as well due to the light weight (equals more ice for Corona's). The pan is made out of stainless steel is on legs and looks like it meets the ranger requirements. Should last for ever. Check it out at
