SOT for my wife

-- Last Updated: Mar-23-16 5:23 PM EST --

Hi all. I haven't been on the forums for a while. I live in central IL and primarily paddle the Salt Fork and Middle Fork of the Vermilion River.

I use a Mohawk Odyssey 14 solo canoe and a Necky Vector 13 SOT kayak. The rivers I paddle are mostly slow moving, rocky rivers with some fun class 0.5 riffle sections but no whitewater.

My wife is interested in a SOT kayak to use when she occasionally comes with me on a down river day trip. She quite likes my Vector 13, but she wants something smaller and, most importantly, lighter. She is about 5'5 and 150 lbs.

Any ideas?

Hurricane Skimmer,
either the 128 (which I have and love) or the 116 which is even lighter.

What sissy said ^^^
I have the 116. Love it.

OK Venus 11
Wife wanted it just because it was pink…yes I’m serious.
