  Tsunami 17' 6"
  Posted by: civengine on Feb-13-13 1:45 PM (EST)
 

I am 5' 10" and 215. I just got done with 5 days in the glades with this kayak. I would not want to be much bigger than me in this kayak. I have size 10 gorge boots on and while I could get my feet in fine there is no way a size 15 paddler would be comfortable. Also I'm not sure the seat is wide enough. I have a 40" waist and it had probably another inch on either side for a bigger paddler too.

Its a gear hauler and not a 'fun' kayak. It needs a rudder too. Its great for its niche but I will only paddle it for expeditions.
