  30-60% of volume
  Posted by: Erwin on Dec-23-12 5:08 PM (EST)

I did read somewhere that best performance is achieved for a total weight (in kilograms) of approximately 30% (30% at least, maximum 60%) of the kayak volume in liters. Example: 108 kilos, max 216 kg for a 360 liters kayak, (ex 80kg paddler with 28kg kayak of 360 l).

The article was a speed test of many seakayaks, written in German.
