since 2007 i've been using a hammock. did 100 nights+ on AT with temps below 0 at times. its warm with a good quilt system. i use them kayaking, but i carry a pad if i need to go to ground/beach. use tarp for tent.
a good site http://www.hammockforums.net/?
no kayaking, but our winter NJ Pine Barren hang http://outdoors.webshots.com/album/579661795dJFvSR?vhost=outdoors&start=140
I've paddled the Yukon 4 times so far (I'm not done yet), and for the same reasons did not bring my Hennessy. Instead I slept on cold damp uneven uncomfortable gravel bars. Too bad there are no suitable trees.
