I wouldn't mind having a canoo, they're pretty fun.
I would highly recommend one of these http://www.marathonboat.com/doubleend-17.asp

We have the standard model and it is stable as the kitchen table and tough as nails. In the years that we have had it the only times it rolled was when my dad and I got turned broadside in a very fast moving current (don't try to go up the Duck River, trust me) and when I took a friend out on a local river and he freaked out when he almost smacked into a snake hanging from a tree (there's a great story about that little trip). It tracks very well in rivers and lakes and with a 36" beam it is very stable for fishing even on lakes. With an aluminum canoe you don't have to worry about grounding, stumps, or rocks as much (it's still best to avoid them). At 85lbs one person can handle it if they had to, and it only draws a few inches of water.
