American will take your boat, but get it in writing and have them post it to your reservation. I got them to take my boat but with a fight. Coming home just have your receipt and you can skip paying to bring it back. I paid $750.00 and $80.00 for the boat round-trip. Unfortunately, if you are flying into Quito, American is the only decent choice to get there in one day. I can fax you their Whitewater Kayak unoffical policy and the person at DIA who makes the decisions. Continental will not take your boat. All I can say is do not take no for an answer and get to the airport early with someone who can take your boat home. Good luck and write the airlines. -dpj
