    Go plastic, unless u r really concerned with weight. A lot more bashproof and easier to repair. Take Ur rifle along and make sure it fits in a hatch somewhere, surprisinglytricky in someboats. Have had to do a bit of diy so I can get to mine while in it. Just dont try taking shots while rotated to one side, u'll get wet!

    The old dancers were great, easy to roll if you want to learn, plenty of storage space just dont expect to turn quickly

    Kayaks are for people who wear licra and eat cous cous. Canoes are for men who have big beards and rifles. In a Canadian canoe I can carry nearly as much as a car, as well as two big guys. What are you going to do if you shoot a big stag?

    My fishing yak has a payload of almost a quarter tonne so not too bad. Yakkers wouldn't know what that stuff ^^ is, I certainly don't.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Get canoe with out a keel, keel is good for lakes and flat water(running straight), but if running rapids you are able to drift canoe sideways without keel, very important at bottom of rapid with rock wall approaching and maneuvering logs.

    Have had up to 5 deer in canoe very heavy and hard to steer, good with 2 peoples, ability to bow steer.

    If you want one for rivers, make sure the bottom is smooth. Some have ridges which run length ways. Good on flat water, but they don't slide over rocks in rapids etc and you end up in the drink.
