I am biased and prejudiced but open minded. I much prefer a kayak (open deck)
to a canoe. I have 4 kayaks and one canoe (which I built in 1965 before I

the center of buoyancy), easier to paddle and lighter to carry than a canoe.
My further preference is for a "soft-sided" kayak like Folbot at but I also have one (of 4) rigid plastic
