You might be interested in reading River-Horse by William Least Heat-Moon. His primary vessel was powered but had a kayak for short sections. He was trying to emulate the Lewis and Clark expedition. He went up the Hudson and followed the Erie Canal west. I recall he had difficulties when the Erie and other canals were not open to traffic when he arrived. Enjoy.
