Canadian or Sit-on?

    Hi folks
    I'm looking for a two-seater and wondering if I should go for a sit-on or a Canadian style.
    I want to use it for pure recreational paddling on rivers and lakes on calm days. Nothing too adventurous and on a limited budget. We are no spring chickens so I think something relatively comfortable. Therefore I am thinking maybe a two-seat sit-on type canoe is right for us...am I on the right track?

    Also - what should I look for with regard to buoyancy aids?

    Finally, what problems should I look for and how much should I expect to pay for a reasonable condition boat?
    Many thanks!

    Sounds like a sit on top is what you're after. The Canadian style canoes can be tough on the knees :eek:

    give the guys in I-Canoe a shout in relation to buoyancy aids, they won't steer you wrong. www.i-canoe.ie
