I just bought a sandpiper in Kevlar ultralight and had my first tour today on flat water, but stormy weather with changing winds up to 8 bf. My dealer said it would be too small for my 200 pd at 5'9", but he was wrong. The boat handled just the way I wanted it; much better than my prism kev., which would turn around like hell. If the wind grabs it, I can turn it back into direction with one single stroke (I used a werner ikelos kayak-paddle, which is an extremely powerful paddle). So I donīt know why wenonah stopped the production of this nice little boat. Try it, if you can get one.
