I'd have to take the seats out and kneel if I go with a canoe. I have a little bit of a balance disorder (inner ear damaged in the same wreck where my back/hip got hurt).
Anyway, sitting on the seat in a canoe, I can't keep my balance. Between my extra weight, and the balance disorder, my center of gravity is way too high in the seat. I have to get lower and paddle on my knees.
That's why I'm really not wanting to go the canoe route. I won't rule it out, but they are at the bottom of the list.
I'm really more concerned about the accuracy of the weight ratings. I've found a couple of used yaks locally that are in great shape and under $300. But, they are both weight rated to 300 lbs.
If people here think that with me being 335 and losing weight, they would be OK, I would jump on one or both of them.
