Re: Ches 17 vs 17LT vs 18
Posted by Chris on Jan 27, 2007
I'm almost 250lb (5'10" and too big of belly) and I didn't feel too bad in either the Ches 17 or 17LT. I felt a bit to heavy for the Shearwater 17, but the Arctic Hawk felt better...although kind of clostrophobic for my legs in the small cockpit version.
I went with the WR18 because I'd paddled one before I went to the demo and I wanted something "livelier" than the Chesapeakes.
