I had an inflatable kayak and it was great but I found a hole in it today and I have been wanting to look at actual kayaks anyways.
I mainly use the kayak for just paddling around and some light fishing. I would like to be able to swim off it too.
Here are what I have been looking at
Lifetime Tamarack Angler 100
Perception Swifty Deluxe
Future Beach Trophy 126 Deluxe
The most important things to me are tracking and speed, however I don’t want to sacrifice everything else just for that. I prefer sit inside but sit on top is safer and easier to swim off of.
I am open to other suggestions but I can get the above locally so any suggestions would have to be able to be shipped to my location and still stay below $400.
Also any recommendations on a paddle? Thanks
