We're considering the addition of a small personal watercraft to our outdoor gear, but are having a tough time deciding between kayaks or a canoe. Does anyone have personal experience, preferences or dislikes of either or both?

Whatever we get (two kayaks or one canoe?), it will have to travel well on our Explorer's roof rack and be fairly light since I'm old and weak and not exactly overly tall. laugh.gif

All information, advice, horror stories and opinions on the subject will be most welcome.

I purchased an inflatable Sevylor kayak. Takes about 5 minutes to inflate, holds two people and a bunch of equipment. Can be paddled like a canoe or a kayak. When deflated it rolls up pretty small and weighs about 40lbs. Despite what you may fear, it is very tough and I haven't had any leaks thus far. There are several air chambers so even if one does deflate the others will keep you going.
