Since no one else has said it yet in this thread I'll say that building a strip canoe is not only fun but cost-effective. I am 200# and am very comfortable in my slightly modified Kite canoe, designed by John Winters. I don't think I have put in more than 40 pounds of gear and food, but I think the canoe would carry more, the designed weight capacity is 280 if I recall right. Mine is close to 40 pounds with the seat, but they can be built lighter. Mine cost about $300 to build, 5 years ago.
