Yes, welcome to TF. Just get some sort of vessel, and get out there and get learning. Oh, and always wear a life jacket. I first caught the urge as a kid, poling myself around our farm dam in a large and very leaky timber packing case. One trip across - haul out - tip over - put back in - repeat many times a day..!

Welcome, You have to start somewhere, TN.
Any boat will do. As Peter said, you can start learning with anything that floats. I used to build rafts from driftwood that broke up when we hit the rapids on the Goat River. I slowly increased by skill level and boat size.
