My 72-year-old mother is ready to trade in her kayak for a lighter model. She has a Walden Paddlers Vision Expedition, 12’6", that weighs 41 pounds. She bought it new in 1998 and has used it often since then. These days, she is having trouble lifting it onto her car and is looking for another model that weighs around 30 pounds and tracks well.
She can afford a new boat, but would prefer not to buy high-end unless she has to. Used is fine but must be within reasonable driving distance of Southern NH. Advice and suggestions welcome. Thanks!
