just saw one,looks like it would be a neat boat, anyone paddled it?
I posted a semi-review about it a while back. I have no idea how to find that thread.
I like it. Great boat. I like the 15.5. I don't care for the 16.
Where did you see the Zephyr? In Maryland? I have only seen pictures, I would like to try the 15.5. Thanks, Steve
Paddled it at a Demo
Unfortunately I was on a slick calm lake. I paddled the shorter of the two.
Compared to my Tempest 165:
The coaming was more entry/exit friendly.
Turned more easily.
Had more secondary stability… loved an edge.
A little slower. Less glide.
Would have enjoyed trying it out at Bear Inlet on Saturday. Maybe I’ll rent one and go back soon.
