50 feet is much too close to canoes and kayaks. I think a lot of people can't estimate 50 or 150 feet. By the time they slow down approaching a canoe or kayak, they've already caused waves that can upset a small craft. I try to avoid this by not paddling where there are motor boats and paddling defensively. I also carry an air horn.
