  Even that is complex
  Posted by: jimyaker on Oct-09-12 5:12 PM (EST)
 

I'm an expert at Class II, Intermediate with Class III and total Nivice at Class IV. I am a novice in sea kayaks, but fairly adept at paddling rec boats and SOTs on lakes and slow moving water.

Even so, I've only paddled a couple of whitewater boats, so I can tell you some things, but I can't compare them to others very well -- even with my expert hat on. But, I can tell you many of the weaknesses of certain boats in certain conditions. When the guy with a keel on his rec boat jumps into the squirrelly outwash from a Class II+ rapid, I can often predict the outcome -- he will flip upstream as he gets into the current...

So, am I qualified to rate boats? I can't even answer that...

Jim
