  Too small for the Zephyr at 115 pounds

It wasn't a problem with the boat, but the match between paddler and boat.

I am a little curious about your statement that "everyone here" recommended the Zephyr 155 for you. If you provided that weight, there are several regulars here including myself who would have steered you to something like the Avocet LV or similarly really small scaled boat. Granted a given post might be missed, but that is just way far off the usual results.

That is assuming these correct numbers... is it a typo? 115 pounds would be light for me at 4 inches shorter.
