Boating after surgery...

I am getting back into kayaking after a two total hip replacements. I am wondering if there are any boaters out there who have had a hip replacement (or two) and have gotten back into it (or know someone who has). I do not want to hurt myself or reinvent the wheel... feedback from someone who knows would be nice. Thanks!

I would think the best place to ask your question is in the main boater forum so I have moved it there.

Woh! I know a few guys that cross-country ski after a double hip replacement.

Best of luck!
