I have an opportunity to purchase a Hydra Sea Venture Kayak, 16’. I can’t find out much information or advice on it. For $400 I’m looking to venture into a kayak that I came do some weekend camping trips. I seems to be from the late 1980’s to early 1990’s. It does have front a rear bulkheads but it is a 3 hours drive from me so I haven’t seen but pictures of it in the CL ad.
My questions are: Is it stable w/o gear (I’m 6’, 210 lbs). How much gear could I hold? Looking at doing a Port Huron to Monroe, MI run over a long weekend, about 90 miles, down-river and lakes.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated…
