I just bought a brand new in box CLC kit off Craigslist. Seller said it was a Chesapeake 17 but when i went to meet the guy to pick it up it turns out it was a 18. It was a great deal and he guy had driven an hour to meet me so i took it. I am about 35lbs shy of the 210 lb paddler weight specifed for this boat. Will it be entirely too big for me?
I currently paddle a Impex Susquehanna so I am used to a high volume boat. Any 175 pounders ever paddled a chesapeake 18 and if so how did it handle?
