I recently spoke with someone who had fond memories of paddling Daggers (Sitka and Meridian), which are no longer in production. I’ve never paddled one, though he said they “weren’t bad boats at all”
In the guitar world, many enthusiasts can make the argument that the old Fender amps or Martin guitars actually were/are better than their contemporaries.
So my question is: are there any out of production kayak models you really enjoyed “back in the day” that you would consider to be as good as today’s boats, and why? You don’t have to go back far in time; just any boat that is no longer in production, that you wished still was.
