BoatWiki - Definitions
A canoe can be defined as a double ended watercraft with an open deck and seating for one or more persons. Although there may be some variations, canoe's are almost always manually powered by paddle or pole.
Canoes are popular for boating enthusiasts who prefer serenity and convenience while communing with nature. However, they are less stable than most keeled boats and are not suitable for rough or open waters.
Most states do not require the registration of canoes unless mechanically or sail powered. In these cases, the length may become a factor.
Although titling and registration for canoes is not typically an issue, boaters should confirm this with the respective boat registration agency.
