they are all "canoes."
when traveling, we are limited to the boats available from local liveries
Much more available to rent or buy in the UK than most other places and I 'm aware of a few British folk setting up "open canoe" tours in parts of France. There is a big canoe following in the Netherlands and Germany with a lots of paddlers taking there boats to Scandinavia to make trips. We used to catch the ferry from England to Norway then drive over to Sweden for two weeks each year. For a lot of Germans a trip in Sweden is seen as a practice run for a Yukon excursion.That's all very true. CanAm open canoes are rarely available elsewhere. That's why I chose to use the verb "paddle" rather than "canoe" in the topic title. Stated even more generically, I was interested in learning where else in the world our canoeing members have propelled a small local watercraft.
YellowcanoeAndre have you been able to paddle in the US or Canada?
Wow to paddle in E Germany.. sad about the pictures but I am sure the trip is firmly in your memory.
