  Canak benefits
  Posted by: c2g on Feb-06-14 8:40 PM (EST)
 

When you look at the Canak vs. a Prism, you are basically looking at a decked canoe vs. an open canoe.

The primary benefit of a deck or spray cover on a solo canoe is that it reduces the wind effect by a noticeable amount. It will also keep spray and the occasional bit of slop out of the boat.

If you are thinking of a kayak vs. the Canak/Prism, ease of portaging the Canak/Prism might be something to consider.

The pedestal seat will accept the pedestal-mounted portage yoke http://wenonah.com/Items.aspx?id=59 which is very quick to put on and take off, as well as comfortable to use.

I also find a canoe (or the Canak) easier to load/unload because I don't have to break the gear down into small bags that will fit through the hatch.
