Everyone seems to take a 16' boat with them.
There are a lot of places I paddle whate shorter is better. Shorter turns easier and can get into streams easier so I paddle a 12' Dirago as a compromise. Maria the Mermaid goes kayak campign in a 9 1/2' Swofty???
So, lacking that extra 4' I must take smaller and less gear, a fact I learned on a trip with me in my 12', Harry in his 14' and Brian in his 16' boat.
