Hey gang, I have been kayaking for one season using a loaner, getting into my own first kayak this year. The boat I’ve been paddling is an old (20 years they guess) Walden scout. I’m a big guy, every other kayak that I’ve tried is tippy or shaky but not the scout. The thing handles my weight like a champ, even in easy rapids.
It looks like there’s two websites that are offering new Walden scout exp models, but I can’t find any info on the boats themselves aside from the two retailers websites that are offering them or on Walden boats in general. I guess they being made again?
If I can buy a new Walden scout (the pictures look EXACTLY like the old model) I would snatch it up in a second. If they don’t and these websites have old info, what is a good stand in? I am 6’1" and 350lbs, the old scout sat on the water like I was sitting on the ground. Amazing.
Thanks in advance folks, long time reader first time poster!
