Reply To: Advice about boats.

Hi Gerry,

Wow, there isn’t much I can add, Geza provided you with excellent and logical information; my only comment/suggestion would be to try different kayaks before buying.  Figure out what you like and don’t like then look for the boat that suits you best based on the features that you’ve determined to be important to you.  Many Kayak outfitters sell gently used boats at the end of the season, you might find that to be a good option and it would certainly provide you with the ability to try several boats in close succession and enable you to eliminate those that are not a good fit and narrow down your search.

I hope this helps a little.
