Canoes vs Kayaks
Posted by: vcmtthws on Jan-15-11 7:01 PM (EST)
We see eye to eye on this, nice to meet you. We refer to our canoes as SUV's and the expedition canoes as the mother ships when entertaining friends and family with kayaks. Kayaks we have dubbed The Sports Car of paddling. Not because they they are so much faster (my solo will keep pace with just about any kayak, as will our large tandem), but because they are so limited in space, they aren't good for much more than the bare minimums. Long and medium survival involves a considerable amount of prep and suffering, or a mother ship to come home to. If that's the paddlers bag, great. But it sure is hard to get a young family to go on an outing without backup.
