in a canoe. I like that aspect. Never been a big ultra light type of guy. Built for comfort, not for speed. You're going to need a Kayak for certain trips but I just find trips that are suited to my preferred craft - the canoe. It is an amazing craft and can take you many places if you have some skills. Easier to get in and out of too - that gets important after a certain age. You can sleep under a canoe - that can be an advantage sometimes. It makes a great wind break when cooking. You can stand up in it and scout rapids ahead or pick channels in low water. You only need a couple of inches of water to get through places. You can pole a canoe. I know there are some places where a kayak is going to be better in some ways. Still - for some reason I just love canoes.
