Canoe vs. Kayak

I was just wondering what your thoughts were on the advantages/disadvantages of owning a canoe vs. kayaks.

Re: Canoe vs. Kayak

Canoe = stability while fishing and cargo capacity, more rugged, fairly idiot proof in calm water but (apples to apples) more money and heavier.

Kayak = highly mobile, lightweight - easily portaged but needs some skill even in fairly benign positions, rocks....very bad, and can't carry as much gear.
