Boat sizing ?

Posted by Bryan on Jun 23, 2005

I am 6-1, weigh 190 and wear a size 13 shoe. I'm looking to build my first kayak, and am wondering if I would be comfortable in a Chesapeake 16 or 17. If possible, I'd like to keep the length to a minimum to make it easier to store and transport. Anyone out there about my size have any experience in these craft? I'm not looking for doing any long trips, just day trips of a few hours.

Thanks in advance,
