the right 'yak

Posted by Jeff Lewis on Jul 28, 2005

Hello All,

Tried out a friend's yak on an abalone diving trip last summer and fell in love with the freedom of movement it gave me, now looking to build my own.

For a 5'9" 165lbs person looks like either the 17 LT or the 16 could work. Any suggestions? I'll mostly be paddling in the SF Bay, and near shore paddling in the Pacific on abalone trips, though I'd like to eventually do longer open ocean trips.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Thanks, Jeff
