So I am currently in Memphis TN (by our parents), but my brother and I are in college in NYC, and are based up there.

We really just want to do it for exercise, burn calories, and build muscle. Of course, enjoying the workout makes it all the better. I would prefer to have a rowing skiff, but I dont think we have the money for that.
I am also scared of getting a used boat, because we know nothing about boats and how to repair them. We've been canoeing and rafting plenty, but on vacation.

Anyone have a skiff in NY/ tri state area they want to sell?

And back to the original topic, is it a good or bad idea to just drop a rigging in a canoe/ kayak?

Or of course our problem could be solved if someone could answer this: Does rowing a canoe or kayak give you a similar or good full body workout as to a sliding seat rowing skiff?
