Boat Racks for RV Travel

Just some stuf I have run across in my travels.

canoe

Pete, thanks for the picks. I am going to get a boat rack and mount it
on my shell and buy a canoe this spring. I had a 14' aluminum boat for
10 years and just sold it, we want to try something else for a while.
We are going camping for the weekend. Have a good day. Jay Herb :sunny

kayak

Before you buy a canoe, do yourself a favor maybe and find a kayak place that will let you demo a couple. I think my kayak is the best boat I have ever owned and I certainly have the most fun in it. Much easier to paddle and more stable than a canoe.

I have a canoe with a small outboard stashed away at a friend's in Florida that I am saving to take a long trip into the Everglades NP some year because it will hold a lot of stuf, but I am going to drag my kayak behind it.

Built a 17' cedar strip canoe, two years ago. Bought a 15' kayak last spring. There isn't just a whole lot of water in S.E. Colorado on normal years; but this year, as you know, we really set some new records.

Am now purchasing a Scamp to take the kayak (or canoe) to where the water is. Would consider a boat like Morgan's, but don't want to be eaten.

I'm with Pete. I've got a 13' Old Town Castine with rudder, beautiful little boat, and as Pete says, much more stable than the canoe we had before. It is also perfect for the single paddler. It's a cinch to paddle once someone tells you how to get into it!

In Praise of Kayaks

Floy,

LOL! I've come to the conclusion that there is NO graceful way to enter or exit a kayak. My method is just hope no one is looking.

We leave in a bit for an overnighter (#3) with our new-to-us Casita. This time we'll be taking the kayak to do some birdwatching. Will try to get a pic to post of our carrier system - which is basically throw the lil Swifty on top of the truck.

Have a great weekend, everyone!
