My daughter is getting old enough to do some “real” paddling with. We bought her one of those cheap 6` SOT boats a few years ago, and although it doesn’t track worth a bean, it was good enough to get her out on the water, and I could tow her if I wanted to. Later we got her a used inflatable, but it is a wide, cumbersome beast.
I have an old Valley Avocet RM that I love. Tracks great, fits me great, etc. Unfortunately, I have to let my daughter use it now - and I get stuck with the inflatable (ugh!).
What are some suggestions for a quality boat for a small ( ~5’, 70#) paddler, that I would be able to find used? The Eddyline Samba looks about like what I’m thinking of, but there’s no way I paying anywhere near $2000 - more like <$500.
