The wife and I are looking at getting into paddling. We will be bringing our dog along, and have been steered away from kayaks. We are wanting to hit the local reservoirs on week day evenings, maybe mountain lakes, and slower rivers, maybe working up to class 2???? Maybe some overnighters, and fishing. We do realize that more difficult rivers may require another vessel.
My wife won't let me make my usual impulse buy:( and wants me to research this. So I found this forum and thought I would see what you wise folks had to say!
Questions- What length? Width and depth? Different styles?? What determines these decisions?? Anywhere you recommend I can go to find this basic info????
Thank you in advance for taking time to help a noob!!!
