Hi Jim,

The "fastest kayak" post is a strictly anecdotal evidence from a single person.

Kayaks do have differences in their speed potential and the argument "it's the engine not the boat" leaves out the situation where you already do all you can to improve your "engine" and the improvement to the equipment is the "low hanging fruit".

You can download the Free!Ship program and use it's calculator to compare the speed (drag) for various boats.

You'll see how much they can differ.
