18 vs 17lt

Posted by Jon T on Sep 12, 2005

Hi, I'm about your size. I have built an MC 16.5. It's definitely good for flat water.

The point of this email is: I think the Chesapeake 17 and probably the 17lt would be a lot better fit for you than the 18. I paddled the 17lt at Okumefest and it fit me fine. 6-1, 195 lbs, size 12 shoes.
