Ditto on the outrigger. Coleman used to sell them for their canoes, but $25 worth of bamboo (which grows surprisingly north) or PVC pipe and some pool float foam can make a quick outrigger that also can be broken down into a small bundle for storage. You don't need both sides of the canoe--just one outrigger, 4-5 feet out there, is surprisingly good. And it doesn't have to sit in the water to work.

Who knows, with young kids it might be fun project on a rainy afternoon, whether it works or not. A sneaky way to teach them math, bouyancy, and lever arms.

Dang, I forgot about geo caching, use to do that with the dirtbikes and it was a blast, need to check it out again.

We have 2 Ocean Kayaks ( actully 4 but only two on the boat ) for our tenders, they work out great, easily stored on deck and loads of fun

Kayaks are lots of fun. When extended cruising, we sometimes position our 2 Perception Sundance 9.5 kayaks on the forward coach roof, along with a towed inflatable. Normally though, when it's just the wife and I, just one will do.

The 9.5' models really are quite affordable - a pair cost us less than an inflatable of equal length, and no engine required.

Late in the day, just after a summer squall while approaching an overnight anchorage, we were blessed with this double rainbow.
