Which came first - boating or boatbuilding?

Just curious about those on the forum,

were you a boater/paddler first or woodworker?

Personally I've been woodworking for years and only recently took up kayaking (with a plastic kayak) and I thought I could make one of these.

Still some way to go with my build though.

Boating.  I just could't believe it would be possible to build such beautiful craft that work so well.  I hate plastic!

Kayak - still not sure that I can be counted as a woodworker.
