  have a "fitting"
  Posted by: trvlrerik on Jan-29-13 8:20 PM (EST)
 

I agree with your logic. In hind sight I would have saved thousands of dollars by getting the boats I have now from the beginning.

I would urge you to go to a kayak shop where you can be "fitted" for correct sizing. Going from a rec boat to a touring boat will be a foreign feeling that may take some adjustment. Formal classes will also shorten the learning curve and prevent bad habits that are tough to break. (again, from personal experience).

Enjoy your new boat.
