That's why we have a canoe.
No motor, no registration required in TN, almost no cost. My dad payed $1500 for it three years ago and the only other cost has been $30 for wood to make a rack for it for the back of my truck and the gas to get to the lakes or rivers. It's quiet so you can get right up to wild life, we can float in as little as 4" of water, and it's a great upper body workout. I've taken a few of my friends out on a local river and they couldn't wait to go out again.
It's not the equipment that makes a professional, it's the operator.
