Re: 16lt or 17lt
Posted by Jeff on Nov 15, 2004
I built a 16lt for my wife and a 17lt for myself. My wife is around your weight and the 16lt works great for her.
I am around 170 and paddle her 16lt some. The 16lt almost works better for me. When camping for a week with 100 lbs. of gear, I am glad I have the 17lt. The rest of the time I like the 16lt.
I would recommend the 16lt for you. The 17lt would not be fun to paddle in wind or waves for a light paddler.
