Hi to all,
I'm italian (sorry for my english), i'm 30 years old and i'm new in this forum and in kayak's world. I live in a small city in the east coast of Italy, in front of the Adriatic Sea and I've been on a kayak a few years ago and it is a fascinating experience.
Now i'm interested to purchase/build my own wooden kayak but, beyond of having paddled for a few km, I haven't technical knowledge about that.
I want to make long trips along the coast whit the possibility to bring the necessary to camp some nights. I'm oriented to a Chesapeake 17 which ensures a good stability and stowage, but is it really suitable for this kind of trip? Is there a more appropriate kayak? What are the most important features to know to buy a kayak more suitable to me and to this kind of trip?
