That’s good that it floats.
While I want a boat for flat and whitewater, I don’t want to get two (more) boats, so I figured to see how I get along for now with a relatively mild WW one.
I actually got a Grumman 17 a few months ago anyway, but it’s a beast for one person just to pick up. I wasn’t even motivated enough to put it in the water, although I’ll keep it for now for when I find someone to paddle with. What makes sense, now that I think about it, would be to look to trade that for a smaller, lighter, flatwater tandem that would also be good solo.
The OT H20 has 4" of rocker I think. The Mohawk XL13 has 3". The OT is almost 14’ long. From what I read about them, including the reviews here, they are amongst the best tracking WW boats due to their moderate rocker and long length. What that’s worth remains to be seen.
Is it possible trying to keep such a boat going straight would make for excellent flatwater stroke training?
I was skeptical about how much I would like a saddle for fishing or even mild river trips like most of the Delaware. Is it practical to extend legs forward while in a saddle, and is that comfortable for cruising/fishing even if you can?
I might want to be looking into an alternate seat that I can easily swap in and out. Any ideas on that?
My WW paddling will be primarily on the Delaware and Lehigh Rivers. I’m thinking I probably wouldn’t need the float bags for the Delaware.
