Re: C-17(LT) or C-16?
Posted by George K on Apr 26, 2006
I built my wife the CH 17lt. She's about the same height/weight (and does your wife know you're telling everybody what she weighs?) as your wife and absolutely loves the boat. She has no problems handling it and is a novice paddler. It's also the one friends paddle when they want to try kayaking for the first time. Stable, fast and haven't lost anybody yet! My vote goes to the 17lt as it won't limit your paddlers size like the 16 would.
My 2 cents.
