Whatever floats your boat

As I travel around I notice human-powered boat preferences change region by region. Kayaks, rubber rafts, jon boats, drift boats… 

Here in north-central Montana it’s good old canoes that seem to rule the day. Maybe it goes back to the early exploration of the upper Missouri River. Maybe they just make sense for slower flowing prairie rivers. Whatever the reason, they’re the craft I’m most familiar with. I have a canoeing merit badge.
