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 can…oeist 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 .

There is evidence showing that there were Canoes a hundred feet long that could hold 80 men. The size of a dugout canoe is limited only by the size of the tree trunk you could… work to make it; if you include redwood's and several types of cedar, the canoe could be very large. Inuits (Eskimo) used canoes to hunt whales, if that gives you any ideal of their size. (MORE)
Canoes have been around since 8,000 BC, long before patents and record books. Canoes of differing types can be found on every continent, but evidence of them are hard to find …as they tend to rot. The only safe answer to this question is that "Humans" or their predecessors invented the canoe. (MORE)

Canoeing is simply one method of traveling across water in a (usually) self-propelled manner. As you probably know, a canoe is a narrow watercraft, similar in design to a kaya…k, but open at the gunwales (sides) to allow two or more people to sit or kneel in the craft, and by rowing, propel the craft forwards across the water. Some canoes are quite large in relation to others-Pacific Islanders are known to use canoes holding twenty or more rowers. Other canoes, such as those popularized by Native Americans, may be designed for only one or two occupants. (MORE)
Canoes float because the wood that they are made out of is solid on the bottom but hollow on the sides. Whether constructed of wood, sheet metal, fiberglass, or some compos…ite material, canoes displace more water (by weight) than they weigh themselves. This is the principle behind all water craft. Even submarines use this principle, though they displace less water than they weigh, which is used to control their depth. (MORE)
