  I Paddle a Temptest
  Posted by: TomM on Dec-30-12 4:05 PM (EST)
 

I am 6'2" and weigh about 220 and have paddled fully loaded in all conditions and the boat handles great. Regarding stiffness: my boat is 4.5 years old and it definitely has some flex. There have been times offshore in easy swells that I can feel the hull beneath my butt flexing while I am not paddling. I don't know anything about hull design so I am not sure if plastic boats loosen with age or not.
