Been doing A LOT of research and met MANY nice people via p.net As I narrow down my search I have really come to prefer skeg to rudder. I’m looking for a kayak based on following;
- 6’1" 190lbs
- 80% training/exercise on lake or slow rivers
- 10% day trips in ocean
- 10% races flatwater (just want to compete ie. don’t need a K1 racer).
- willing to sacrifice maneuverability for speed
- lighter in weight (want glass or layup)
My current short list includes (in order);
NC17 daytripper or NC19
Anyone with other yaks they would add or comments/advice would be greatly appreciated.
