all specialized except one each Posted by: FrankNC on Dec-26-12 10:20 AM (EST)
We each have one one that we could do everything with.
For me it is the Current Designs Kestral 140; it does every kind of water and trip well except for the fact that on many of the places we go it would need repairs afterward. (I'm starting to save the repairs and do them all twice a year)
For her it is the Dagger Alchemy L.
Then we have some sea kayaks that are not so good for rivers; a Wilderness Cape Horn 140 and a Cobra Expedition.
We have a whitewater only boat; a New Wave Buzz that we need to sell or give to a good home. We don't paddle any water that is would be the best boat for.
We have a rec boat that is a hoot in the ocean and bays; the Wilderness Manteo.
And Finally we have a couple of surf boats; A dagger Kaos and a Cobra Revision. The Revision is a decent rec boat for rivers and swamps as well if you are willing to put up with it's slowness off a wave. The Kaos is a one trick pony.
If we each only could have one boat I think we'd get another Alchemy and sell everything else.
