Asking because my wife believes that I do. And she’s right If I see a good boat at a good price, and I’m even remotely curious about it, I’m likely to buy it. I don’t live in an area where there are tons of boats for a guy or gal to just try out, and a limited test run is only a snapshot anyway. Some I’ll keep for a year or two, others for less. I often do a little maintenance to them and end up selling them to someone I’m acquainted with. I like meeting other paddlers and those interested in getting started, so it works out. I’ve probably sold 3 or 4 over the last couple of years.
I was really interested in the Chatham when they came out but never got around to getting one. This one popped up on my radar for a fair price so I snagged it. I have 2 other boats that are in the same category, so I didn’t need it, but why not? I’ll spend some time in and see how things shake out.
So, who else suffers the same affliction?
