I've floated in both Mckensie style and skiffs with guides. I am surprised that you don't see more skiffs being used around here. What are the rowing differences between the two types? Other than the HI, the local tailwaters don't really have lots of technical rowing sections and it seems like a skiff is better in windy conditions and are sure alot easier to get in and out of.
What are your ,(those with experience), thoughts on this?
