I hope this clarifies the issue for all concerned.
Brilliant!

[QUOTE=gordon2;719632]Grammar Error Alert! There is no period at the end of the above sentence!

Note: Capitalization of the first letter of "Nazi" is more likely proper than not, but this is open to some debate and so it has not been flagged as a grammatical error in this case.



LOL

BTW, I too saw the mistake right away, but thought best not to worry about it.
Touché!

Lucky if the afrementioned "unattractive woman" doesn't make you sleep on the floor!

I am sort of attracted to the Kaboat inflatable from Saturn. I would add a battery and trolling motor. Getting out on the water is fun, but rowing or paddling exertion, meh, that gets old quickly.

So does hauling a 12V deep cycle battery, trolling motor, life jacket and cooler down to the boat. Which is why I returned the trolling motor I got for Xmas.

Advice: Hauling canoe on FGRV

Paddling exertion?

A kayak is about as effortless as it gets on the water. I am not an athlete, nor even in particularly good shape, but I can paddle a kayak for hours. It's an amazingly natural and efficient means of moving through water. I've canoed and I've rowed, and a kayak is nothing like either.

It does require some dexterity to enter and exit a kayak, but once in, it's very comfortable. I introduced my mother to kayaking in her late 70's. She mastered the basics quickly, and her stamina lasted 2-3 hours exploring a local lake.

Trolling motor?

I get old waiting to get anywhere propelled by an electric motor. A kayak can run circles around anything using a trolling motor without breaking a sweat, and never any range anxiety.

I guess if you've tried it and it didn't work for you, then I've nothing to say, but if you've never tried it, you might be as surprised as I was the first time I hit the water in a small kayak.

Canoe on Scamp 19’

Yes we have hauled a canoe on our Scamp for 12 years. Start with a 41# kevilar. 17’ Sauris River. Get the canopy brackets for a Yakima rack. Line up the bolt holes with existing rivit holes. We tied it down in 6 places. Carried a 3’ step ladder but could often load and unload from the ground.see photo. Roger, in Oregon
PS our trailer is for sale. We ordered an escape TA
