  Over simplified and in part just wrong

This statement was brought up on the advice board.
"A 17 foot or 18 foot canoe will be much faster across the water but will sink like a submarine while shooting whitewater."

That's just wrong.
There are a lot of design criteria besides length that make a boat work in whitewater. A 17' Old Town Tripper is a pretty good whitewater boat, solo or Tandem.
Not sure that I could do better in the space used. I just hate to see folks mislead.
