We have been photographically informed that you have a noun-canoe, but there is as yet no Zapruder evidence that you verb-canoe it.

Me - I canoed all my life until the anomalous 1996-2004 period, during which I bought three sea kayaks and paddled them almost to the exclusion of canoes. This period is now known as the "My Lost Years", "My Dopey Middle-Age Paddling Crisis" or "How to be Unhappy and Mediocre with a Double Blade". Since that historical hiccup, I have been exclusively open canoe.

I do want to give credit to Jeff Jones of Western Mountaineering in San Jose, CA, for teaching me how to whitewater kayak in the Sierra Nevadas back in 1980, and then selling me a Mad River Explorer, so I could run rivers in a more sensible and challenging hull.
