I used to have a CD Solstice SS and loved it. It was 17’x22" and had a 29" long cockpit. That last dimension was the problem; I had an awful time getting out of the cockpit, even after moving the seat back an inch. I had to get rid of it.
Is there a kayak that is a similar size and design (with a rudder…) that has maybe a 34" long cockpit? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
I would rather have plastic than composite, but will consider anything.
Last night my kayak got washed off the beach and now has 3 holes in it. The last few storms I secured it and then saw that the worst waves were 3’ away, so last night I didn’t bother. I bought it used really cheap, never liked it, and can make it like new (if 10 pounds heavier and even uglier) with a little FG, but it is a sign I need something I like.
