What is best boat to row?

Watkinsville, GA(Zone 7b)

I would appreciate any suggestions for a boat to row on our pond. I want it for the exercise and to be on the water. This is not a pond in which to swim, so I prefer a stable boat.

My suggestion would be a dinghy. It's a lot more stable than a kayak or canoe and has a bit more room. Here's a picture of one before I put a transom on it.
And if you're the handyman/woman type, you can build a dinghy. And better yet....there are FREE plans on the internet!

Good luck,

I have a Phil Bolger designed sail/row boat that moves like lightening. I use it in inside passage in AK. They are easily built for about $200. You can look them up here. http://www.lbarker.net/nymph/nymph.html I have a "teal" a little bigger. perfect boats! http://bolger.wikidot.com/bolger:rowboats another site.
