    Celia,
    I am your same size. I plan to paddle on the intracoastal waterway, which is generally pretty calm.
    I had a number of years ago an ocean kayak, 17 feet long, fairly heavy but reasonably fast.
    I would like a fast, lighter kayak that would fit me. I wondered if you had any suggestions.
    I am bobfay@gmail.com
    Thx, Bob

      The line that does light and fast quute well is Epic. Cockpit size could be made to work for you with a smidge of padding and they are tracking demons. also very expensive. What weight range and cost range are you thinking of?
  • I am an active kayaker in the Tampa Bay area. I also manage the Best Kayak Accessories website. I have learned a lot from you guys on this site, and hopefully I can contribute as well.

    HI Chodups. Your message showed up on my wall and I am unclear whether this'll be a reply to it or this message will stand alone. But you will get it.

    DON'T WORRY. I almost asked it if was winter myself but String beat me to it. OK so your missed the department of redundancy part. As would I before the morning coffee hits.

    But the absurd behavior after that far exceeds anything you did. Alan going off challenging how you pack your boat is ridiculous. Kayamedic weighing in on something after Alan started it was unneeded criticism.

    I tried to say things to mitigate the foolishness but maybe I used words that were too long. Or it has been raining all week somewhere in the world.

    Anyway, don't worry. And it is possible that someone new reading that thread will get some useful ideas about how to pack their kayak.

    Have a great day. It is not raining here so probably the day to wax my car.

      Celia,

      I have a tendency to gloss over stuff sometimes and when I think I get the jist of something just sort of move on. This was a classic case of the situation I have gotten myself into on this site and some others. I really kick myself when I do that because it drives me nuts when other people do it. I am so utterly slow sometimes that I didn't even get that Alan was calling me out. Jeez, I can be such a dork. Anyway, thanks.

      I have a new drysuit to get wet this weekend so I am hoping for wind against current on the Sound

    Thanks for that information - it looks as though I have the US version. I have the plastic sheg which my brother in law sent me but if course there is no fittings fot it on the kyack! I may have to manufacture a basic wooden rudder or similar to go on the back of the kyack. Thanks again for your help

    Sorry about that. I missed all the clues and took it off in another direction. That's what I get for not reading and comprehending before I responded. Pretty embarrassing, really. I clearly touched a nerve for some folks and wish it wasn't so.

    BTW.....Just as there are some posters who I never read you are one who I always pay attention to. Sorry to have bungled this so badly.

    Allan,
    If my boat is loaded and I want a particular item I know where it is because everything always goes into the same bag and the same location. Example, my oatmeal is always in a 5 litre bag up against the rear bulkhead on the right side of the boat. The bag happens to be orange and I have a half dozen of them. Each has something else in it and lives in a different location.
