that's a wager I'd take, given the number of canoe's vs kayaks sold over the last century, coupled with the number of dolts that go out fishing in canoe's and don't make it back in cold/bad weather, and/or drunken fools paddling on vacation rivers. (compared to kayak's)

that all being said, since there are also technically 1 person canoes meant for white water as well as kayak's I'm also guessing that the statistics are somewhat muddled because the average dolt in those circumstances doesn't understand the difference.

you also have dumbarse actions like this where a canoe killed someone not even in the water... http://www.9and10news.com/story/1903...dding-accident


finally one study comparing the two: http://www.boaterexam.com/usa/califo...pter=6&page=18

• 75% of all fatalities examined were associated with canoeing rather than kayaking.
