Kayaking: Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. Kayaking is generally differentiated from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. Almost all kayaks have closed decks, however, there are many sit-on-top kayaks, and these boats are growing in popularity
Canoeing is the activity of paddling a canoe for the purpose of
recreation (also called a float trip), sport, or transportation. It
usually refers exclusively to using a paddle to propel a canoe with
only human muscle power. A kayak is propelled using a paddle with
two blades where the paddler sits with their legs mostly extended in
front of them, whereas canoes are propelled using single- or
double-bladed paddles where the paddler - a "canoeist" or "canoer"-
is kneeling or sitting on seat or thwart, with their knees bent and
their legs more or less beneath them.
in shape and very similar to half a walnut shell, the structure is
made of a framework of split and interwoven willow rods, tied with
willow bark. The outer layer was originally an animal skin such as
horse or bullock hide (corium), with a thin layer of tar to make it
fully water proof - today replaced by tarred calico or canvas, or
simply fibreglass. The structure has a keel-less, flat bottom to
evenly spread the weight of the boat and its load across the
structure and to reduce the required depth of water - often to only
a few inches, making it ideal for use on rivers.
Banana Boat: A banana boat, often referred to simply as a banana, is an unpowered recreational boat designed to be pulled by a larger boat. Riders sit astride a large tube which is supported by two smaller tubes which provide balance and footrests, allowing them to experience some of the thrill of moving fast and close to the water much more easily and safely than by water-skiing or surfing and they are therefore a popular ride for children. Many large motor yachts or luxury yachts have a banana as one of their onboard "toys", but any powered boat can pull a banana, and they are sometimes available as a commercial ride at holiday resorts. Most models seat between three and ten people. Double models with two seating tubes side by side are available. Banana boats are often yellow and are sometimes actually moulded into the shape of a banana.
