The word of the days, until further notified, is “canoe”.
Shallow draft, go places where “greater” boats can’t. Human powered (always a good thing), and fairly quiet. What’s not to like?
I’m thinking this one by Chesapeake Light Craft:
It won’t fit in the elevator once finished, so I will have build/store it off-site. Not much in the way of lakes around here anyway.
I have to save my pennies for this, so don’t hold your breath. It will be a Spring, 2018 build, if things go as planned, and they rarely do.
