Disclaimer: I do very little paddling.

But my brief experience with those types of yokes is that they do not have enough "curvature offset" to put the weight of the boat on your shoulders. You will be walking stooped over, and the weight will be on your neck.

(We borrowed a fairly heavy canoe with such a yoke a few years ago. After a couple short ten minute carries on easy ground, my neck hurt for a week.)
