yknpdlr, Just for the record, I don’t disagree at all with your personal viewpoint as it relates to the the canoe vs kayak or pack canoes paddled with double-blade paddles. And though I try to adhere strongly to a Keep-it-Simple philosophy regarding watercraft and life in general, there are reasonable modifications I’m willing to accept if such will enhance the pleasure of my time afloat. While I have essentially no experience paddling canoes, with the exception of an autumn afternoon more than five decades ago in an aluminum something or other on the Genesse River in Rochester, your comments have given rise to the notion of acquiring a canoe that might be paddled with both a double and single blade which brings me back to giving more thought to the Oseetah (though I understand that PBW’s production schedule is backed up a full year which would put me close to my 82nd birthday before taking delivery. How quickly the sand runs through the glass🙁). However, I’ve found an easy solution to the garage storage problem. Here is a hoist that will allow a kayak to be stored just below the 12 foot ceiling of our garage and allow plenty of room for a car.
I’ve always enjoyed day dreaming about “the next” boat though, this time, it’s more than likely to be the “last boat”. Jake
