Listen to Willowleaf and the others. This is becoming a familiar scenario- newbie wants to paddle all summer, solo, with no experience.

Canoes capsize more than all other water craft put together. Big rivers with barge traffic, large power boat wakes, storms, water diversion structures, sweepers, etc require big boats and big skill. Maybe in a couple of years. Start on lakes, move to easy rivers and build your skills. I like a tandem boat for paddling solo on big water.
