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.

Thank you both for the useful information.

We had wondered if those inflatables were safe if they developed an air leak...especially since we'd like to paddle around some of the spots in FL which might have the occasional gator here and there.

The kayak being a bit harder to get in and out of is something we had not yet thought of, but indeed that will be a consideration due to CKS (creaky knees syndrom smile.gif ).

Thanks again!
