  sometimes correct, sometimes not

back to my earlier post in this thread, the problem is that the circumstances of the person asking and the person answering may be very different making it hard to relate and know what is correct. Some folks asking about 12' kayaks may aspire to do what would be best done in a longer boat and some may actually be better with an even shorter boat. If the person asking has already learned well that a 12' really is best then hopefully he communicates that well and others can help find the best 12' boat. But if the person asking seems to be very new it is very possible they are considering 12' for all the wrong reasons. It's very hard to suggest much of anything if you haven't met the person and paddled in very similar conditions with similar goals.

Maybe this goes to a key difference between reading the reviews vs asking about best boat. If you KNOW you want a 12' rec boat then read the reviews. If you SUSPECT you want a 12' rec boat ask others on the board and expect they may have other thoughts.
