I've been on the water all my life (hold a 50 ton USCG master's license with sailing and commercial towing endorsements). Started out as a sailor, but also have several power boats and now a kayak. I have to admit to buying the Old Town Loon 160T used from a guy at work; he no longer needed it to take the kids out because they had graduated to their own yaks.
I can't believe all the things I have missed by not going "low and slow". We use it in the creeks around us in Oriental, NC; what a great place to paddle. We have used it a lot and we love it; wife sits in the front with the dog and I paddle her around like the princess she is. Been looking for a cockpit cover, and thanks to this site, found one at Get: Outdoors.com
