    Kayaking, Canoeing, Hammocking

    Hello All. I'm trying to gauge the common interest between water sports and Hammocks. How many people take their Hammock on kayak and canoe trips?
    Thank you for your input. If you do not take it with you, How many of you own a Kayak or Canoe?

    I kayak fish quite often along smallmouth rivers and streams... enjoy taking the hammock when kayak camping.

    I'm new to hammocking so I've only had tents in my canoe until now.
    Will definitely leave the tent behind and trying out an all-hammock setup for me and the kids this year.

    I own an Ally 16,5. Awesome canoe.

    I kayak camp as much as possible and the hammock is a staple. As someone else mentioned though, I always have the ENO in the kayak...just in case

    I try to do at least one canoe trip and several multi day backpacking trips each year. I have progressed from family size tent to solo tent to tarp only and now to hammock and tarp. I no longer own any tents - if I can't use the hammock I probably won't go.

    I canoe and hammock more than I hike and hammock. What could be better than a nice day on the water and a great night in the hammock?
    Good luck,

    I always bring a hammock on my canoe/kayak trips. Even if the wife and I use a tent, I still bring my ENO along. If i go alone or with a friend, I'll use my hammock usually.

    I do at least three paddle trips a year, one of which is always at least 10+ days long.

    I paddle a Penobscot, Blackhawk Zephyr and I've been making my own mahogany kayaks for 20 years.

    Hiking is something one does on portage trails...

    What you really need to do is pay your $10 to join then look at the paddling threads.

    I switched to hammocks because they are much easier to fit in a kayak hatch and take up less space.
