THE PORTAGE: noun:-the carrying of a boat or its cargo between two navigable waters.
"the return journey was made much simpler by portage"
verb :- carry (a boat or its cargo) between navigable waters.

PORTAGE - obsolete Fr. word outside of Canada, meaning: the painful consequence of poor route planning.

These can be seen in the link following
Sorry I'm technically challenged and can't post the videos directly so no picture here.
