I'm curious if anyone has used wooden kayaks for river paddling.
I'm sure for most lake/creek paddling that wood kayaks are great, but can they stand up to the same punish of a fiberglass/plastic kayak in rough waters?
I have been looking at some of the wood kayak fabricators sites like this one promoting custom wood kayaks
that are "durable, sleek..."
I wonder how durable can they really be? I have images of the crafts smashing against rocks.
Anyone used these wood kayaks in rough water, or is that a strict nono?
