Someone that saw my post below asked, "You look like you are sitting on the floor of that canoe."
That is a Hornbeck Boat, www.hornbeckboats.com. It is 12 feet long and weighs 12 pounds! There is a foam pad installed in the boat and a foam backrest, even foot braces like a kayak has. This model is known as the New Trick. They come in varying lengths up to 15 feet. The 12 foot is the most popular.
The way you get in and out of it is easy and unique. You stand in the water with the top of the canoe resting behind your knees. Then you simply sit down and land on the foam. Next, you swing your legs around inside the boat and you are all set to take off! It is easier than getting in and out of a kayak.
I love the ease in which it handles and tracks. It is a real joy to paddle.
