Your best answer is probably in the post below from CLC. I have the 2005 SW 16 which is narrower than the 2006. My feet are in the 12-13 range. It's mostly the 6' height that would concern me with the SW 16. I am really crammed in the 2005 SW 16 and I have to keep paddling to be stable. Again the 2006 SW 16 is wider and I haven't been in one. I think if you like the handling of the Merganser, then you want the Shearwater over the Chesapeake. Also the CH 17L would have considerably more room than the SW17 in the cockpit. Jon T
