  Great Article

As an owner of 3 kayaks and various other boats, I completely understand this point. I am always on the look out for more specialized boats but it is better to spend that time actually enjoying what you have.

I do use my Wilderness Systems Pungo 140 in class II rapids. This is not what that boat is built for. The bottom has a ridge running the length of the kayak. If I hit a submerged rock in a rapid, the boat tips and gets swamped. While never ideal, it generally works since there is usually a lot of flat water in between.

Be grateful for what you have, not what you want.
