How long is a canoe?
Canoeing was introduced to the Olympics at the 1936 Games in Berlin.
If you carry most of the gear you would need to have on such a journey and you were on a slow moving river (most rivers that long are slow for the majority of their lengths) y…ou would probably only cover an average of 20 miles a day. That's 100 days, or about 3 months.
no it does not
There are many types of canoes and many different materials. An aluminum canoe, reasonably well treated, can last many years. I have seen models from the 1960s still in use. F…iberglas boats are slightly more subject to sun damage and growth of icky stuff when poorly stored, and 10 years or so is a typical limit unless they are very carefully stored. Wood strip boats must be stored very carefully and will (because of that care) last a very long time; without good storage you might only get a couple of years. Northwest Native American (Chinook) dugout canoes were made from raw logs and did not have a long lifespan. They had no good way to prevent rot except burning and addition of cedar oil.
Canoeing is a water-based activity that involves paddling a canoe. The Canoeist is sat or kneels in the canoe and has a paddle (a long pole with blades on each end) the canoei…st then propels himself through the water by paddling or canoeing. Canoeing is for recreation, sport and a form of transport in particular where river systems are navigable by larger boats or water is choppy and broken up with rocks also known as white water canoeing or white-water kayaking. Canoes are also widely used on river systems that cannot be un navigable their entire course known as portage where the light weight of a canoe makes it possible to carry over land to the next body of water.
Canoes can be made out of a variety of materials. In pre-historic times, canoes were made either from large logs that had been hollowed out, or from tree branches, pine pitch… and birchbark. The former were heavy, but strong, and took considerable time to create. The latter were lightweight and could be made quickly out of natural materials that were found in abundance, but needed frequent repairs. Today, the most common canoes are made with fibreglass or similar manufactured substances. Canvas-covered wood frames, wood strips coated with fibreglas, and aluminum are also common methods and materials used in manufacturing canoes.
The length of a typical recreation canoe can vary from a little over 3.5 meters to about 6 meters.
I've only heard it pronounced "cah-new". This is in the Midwestern United States.

Answer about a year or less because kayaks and canoes are fast
It has a schwa sound for the A, and the OE has a long OO sound. (kuh-new)
Canoes originated from the Indians in Poquoson, VA. The first canoe is held in the Poquoson Museum.
Bow is the term used for the front of the boat, Stern is the term for the back.
The stern is the back of a canoe - or any boat (the front is the "bow"). If you aren't certain which is supposed to be the front or back of your canoe look at the seats. One o…f the seats will be close to the point of its end, and one will be further away from the point. The one closer is the back of the boat (the bow seat is further away so the paddler has room for their legs)
