Re: Kayak Size Question

Several excellent points to consider. I think most important is that you try lots of boats and paddle them as much as you can before you choose. If possible under a variety of conditions...also, read some of the better books on Sea Kayaking and Kayak building. You could paddle 10 different boats of the same length and width and they would all have very different handeling or be good at different things...The design you want is probably out there and much can be done about the fit without messing with the hull...think about modifying the deck if anything.
