Is this River pontoon able? Says Anonymous

The Lake Ossipee to Kezar Falls Maine section of Ossipee River in New Hampshire is 10 miles long and is according to American Whitewater a class I-II section of whitewater. The average New Hampshire whitewater rafting or kayaking river tends to be a bit harder to master than those in other states, so if you're not from around here don't forget that a lot of the rivers here are not suitable
    for beginners. There arenít any hotels right nearby but if you're willing to drive a short distance then no problem but if you donít have reservations you might end up sleeping in your car. A good workout and a chance to
spend some time outdoors are sure to keep you coming back for more. The Lake Ossipee to Kezar Falls Maine section is one of a few paddling sections in this river system. You can enjoy this stretch more if you take your time, so go ahead and pack your camping stuff. The natural beauty of New Hampshire and the sparkling of the sunlight on the water make the trip here worthwhile. No matter if you're whitewater rafting or kayaking there are lots  
of good rivers for that around here. The put-in location is a reasonable drive from Laconia, as you can see on the road map further down.

Briefly about the general area:
If you want to hit the beach, Providence Lake Beach is around here; the skiing at King Pine is magnificent. Ossipee River is a place with many visitors from Porter, and on a perfect day it's a great idea to spend the day at Lake Ivanhoe Beach. A river like this is too good to miss. During the summertime months here at Ossipee River, high temperatures regularly get into the 80's. Once the sun is down it sinks down to the 50's.
