I just moved to southwest florida from the north. I've never kayaked before, but i'm really considering building my own wood craft for the pleasure of exploring the shallow coastal regions, islands, inlets etc. (Also, I could never spend my hard earned money on an obscene looking plastic boat)
MY QUESTION: would it be unbearable to paddle a kayak with a covered deck in this climate? any input from someone with experience kayaking on the suncoast would be greatly appreciated.
