By Size, not sure what you mean?
I'm 5'5", on the stocky side at holiday weight between 160-170 with an inseam of 28", Shoe size 7-8
The 8.5" masik might be good? - I have a hell of time wedging my thighs under my wife's Tchaika thigh braces
I don't think I would be comfortable with my legs straight - probably difficult to effectively attach an extension/block of wood to one of the ribs/frame so I can bend my legs?
For use: I am a novice paddler (finally getting around to taking recovery/rescue class this weekend) and stay mostly in sheltered water ways in South Florida (canals, creeks, bays on really calm days) - I currently paddle an Impex Seabreeze, but always thought skin on kayaks (and wood) looked really cool - will be taking greenland rolling classes in the next few months.
...I suppose $250 is not a real accurate price - add in about 100 bucks for a round trip or $60 if I can convince a buddy coming down to pick it up ;-)
