Re: Which CLC kayak to ch
Posted by Steve C on Jun 7, 2004
I own two CLCs, a Triple and an LT 17. My experience is that the kayak selection chart is good, but I think that the boats handle best when loaded in the upper half of the stated weight range. I'm 5-7, 170 #, and find that I am a little light for the LT17 when in windy conditions. In flatwater, this doesn't matter much, but when the wind and waves kick up, a boat that is kinda' large for the paddler is more work to handle.
