Find a local kayak shop

Sitting in a kayak, on the floor of a shop,
for 5 minutes is worth every second of the experience.
Attempting to physically interact with the product,
reach inside, put stuff in it, carry it, etc.
will reap huge dividends in the enjoyment factor.
Take a one day intro class at a local pool,
if you can, to get "butt time" in a kayak.
- before you buy something.
Think water, think wet, think of all your personal
stuff soaked in water, think capsized boat in a
middle of a lake, play the "what-if" game,
brainstorm it all, before you buy.
