Re: Which CLC kayak to ch
Posted by Petewp on Jun 7, 2004
I would consider the effects of river current on a long kayak like that. My basicaly straight keeled WR180 is a beast to turn in a current. A few days ago I was "stuck" getting drifted downstream sideways - and it was the lesser of the full force of the current that was going in in the middle of the river. While the pax probabaly has more rocker - i really dont know - anything that long getting its bow caught in strong downstream current while its stern sits in a mild back eddy is going to cause you some work.
I'll throw in my 2 cents and guess soemthing like a C17 LT would be good.
