I have some funds saved up and am still looking for a good used kayak. I had a sit-on-top single and still have a tandem sit-inside so I don't have a preference.
I was told for ease of tracking that I need at least 12' in length. I do like the skeg on my tandem as it seems to help keep it going straight. I sold the 9' single because it was difficult to control especially during an upriver paddle. I have taken out my 14' tandem alone and had an easier time with it.
Can you folks weigh in on what (new or used) kayaks you think might be a good buy in the under $600 range or should I keep saving a bit longer?
I live in the Ocala, FL area.
