I can handle my Kayak many times better than my canoe by myself. There’s no comparison to me.

Solo=kayak for me every time.

Still take the canoe quite a bit when going with a partner, but I’ll never have that thing out again by myself.

I’m in rivers 90% of the time, but I don’t see a pond being that much different. Although if it’s your pond and you won’t be moving the boat much, I might would look into a Jon boat instead.

@Holston, Curious, if plastic kayak and plastic canoe are comparable weight, what are the factors that make the kayak easier to handle solo than the canoe? No experience with either one.

Nucanoe Frontier 12 is what I just ordered.
I have a Jackson Mayfly and have also fished from a Pelican Catch 120. I’m 6’4” and around 280.
None have had trouble accommodating me, tackle and a 30qt cooler full of ice and drinks.

I can stand and fly fish in the Jackson and fully expect it to be even better/easier in that Nucanoe

I just wanted the Frontier for the seat as my knees aren’t getting any better and I like the thought of it swiveling around.

The problem I find with 2 man canoes is that, in windy conditions, they are very difficult to control if seated in the rear. They just get pushed around too much with the light front. If seated in the front, they are very difficult to turn. If you were to kneel in the middle, you wouldn't have a seat and many canoes would be too wide to comfortably paddle. I don't have experience with smaller canoes that may be better suited for a single occupant.

I just put a trolling motor up under front seat when I paddle solo in my cano. 20 year mad river explorer. Works pretty good. I ve been looking at a Grumman freighter locally which I had in the past.

Like to try out the nucanoe some day.No local dealers though
