Thinking or ordering the Sassafras 12 kit to build with my 8 pudsyear old son over the winter. From the looks of it, it would be a great size for him and our two younger paddlers currently age 6 and 4. Seems light, easy to build, stable, etc. Doesn't hold much weight but I guess that is OK. If an adult wants to paddle it with a kid also in the boat that weight issue may come up. I am very tall and about 195 pounds so I could paddle it if nesessary but I have my own Mill Creek I'd mainly be in anyway.
Anyone want to talk me out of the Sassafras 12 in favor of one of the other models?
