  Size may be wrong

According to the ad, the masik or deck beam is 8.5" high. What is the height on the Tchaika? Measure straight up and down from the thigh braces or front of the coaming. You know how yor fit in that. Your feet will not reach the foot beam. You can paddle without that, but I don't find that comfortable. SOFs can be really uncomfortable if they
don't fit right. I would think about building your own. I'm working on number 7 now. I'd be happy to talk to you about it if we see you in Englewood.
