  Now I am confused
  Posted by: Celia on Oct-03-12 10:15 AM (EST)

I was OK until I actually read the whole thread, then got confounded. I just checked out the kilograms/pounds cited for the Xtra as in smaller one on Tiderace's site, and got a minimum weight of 155 pounds up to more. So this is an average (before the obesity epidemic) paddler weight boat, not a 5'3" not-heavy woman.

So I see a bunch of new boats, but unless I am missing something the Tiderace lineup has not added any new hulls rated for the 115 to 135 pound paddler range, where many women fit. (I'll take a leap and assume that cockpit fit and deck height will tend to follow the volume, didn't look for those specs.)

Or am I missing a boat in there? I could be...
