That’s “New Kayak Day”.
A couple of months ago I decided it was time for a composite boat. You all have lead me astray. I’ve had a CD Scirocco for several years, and love it…except for the weight. So, did some research and set my little heart on a CD Prana. Made some calls/emails and the gist of the response was “yeah, good luck with that”. I think getting a new one would put me sometime in 2023.
I was about to give up and made one last search - lo, there was a used one up in Iowa! I even liked the color! Two weeks and a quick 2 day 1700 mile road trip later, she’s mine!
Did a very quick shake down on a quiet corner of Lake Travis yesterday. First impressions are that she is definitely faster, and also turns much easier. Stability is not so different from the Scirocco (it was a very calm day on the lake so hard to tell)…maybe a bit less primary.
Will be heading down to Port O’Connor for a little TX Gulf (inside) action on Thursday.
Shout out to Jeff at Canoe Sport Outfitters in Indianola, Iowa. Great guy (with a nice stock of boats btw). He met me at 10:30pm at his store to do the deal!
Here’s just a slightly blurry pic from yesterday…
