A solo canoe (I assume we were referring to a solo kayak) made of similar materials to the kayak in question will undoubtedly be lighter in weight than the kayak.
Come to the Florida Canoe Symposium and try out a few. Better yet, sign up for classes. New this year is "Canoeing for Kayakers". The new class is expressly designed for kayakers who wish to add to their repertoire.
