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

Your ability to even mildly detect sarcasm is absolutely terrible.

oh I detected it, your ability to realize I was trolling skoot is terribad. I even knew the news story he was referencing so it took 30 seconds of googling as he suggested to find couterpoints :)

see there are several types of trolls. skoot is a mostly gregarious, self-effacing, self-mocking troll. steveo was well, he was steveo. up_roktoy/chad/kickstand is well, you

there are more subtle trolls that are also self-mocking such as myself who are mostly just bored






plus I haz a kayak, and don't care for canoe's so I'll over react to those that even sarcastically troll a kayak

So what you're saying is that you knew skootz is retarded, but you decided to waste your time pretending to educate him in a serious manner but you were really trying to be funny?

I think your level or trolldom qualifies as odd.

I don't, and never have disputed that. In fact I think multiple folks here, including yourself have previously identified me as odd :)
as for a waste of time? it took literally seconds to find+post. it's late on a Friday, I'm not at my most productive, even if I am even now multi-tasking watching a data extraction routine write out a file so I can perform yet another "duties as assigned" handed out by the boss.

and really, this is the pub, pretty much every post is a 'waste of time'

I did not bother to click on any of the links, canoe sledding does sound fun though.

I would agree with canoe sledding sounding fun, I know where a good hill is that we can try it out...I.e. your parents house this winter

I'm in, you find us a canoe.

I know for a FACT my old man wouldn't let us within 10 feet of his for those types of shenanigans.

I'm pretty sure it's easier to kill yourself in the kayak than it is in a canoe. I took a kayak class once and they would not let us go away from the instructors until we could show that we could get out of it while upside down in the water. Some people panic and try to come up for air before getting clear of the kayak and get their feet tangled up in it.

while kayaking is slightly harder than a canoe, which leads some people to take courses, there are and were probably some folks in your course that didn't even belong in or on the water...

anyway, I've owned and paddled numerous ocean kayaks, as well as white water kayaks over the past 25 years and the majority you have to have custom fit with high density foam pad kits in order to do a proper brace maneuver, or an eskimo roll - let alone stay inside one when upside down.

and the majority of those I have been in are older designs with smaller cockpit openings - today's cockpits on most of the casual boats have huge openings where you can for example draw your knees up easily while still seated in the saddle. (in my perception eclipse there's no way in hell you could do that)
