  Romany
  Posted by: rrose on Feb-26-13 11:13 PM (EST)
 

hands down the best of the bunch. It does everything well and has sufficient storage for weekend camping. Rock solid and well tested. Get the standard fiberglass setup. Comes with a skeg and a day-hatch, which is a very handy hatch to have. Hardly ever use the skeg. Tracks very well and speed should be very good for you at your weight. If you get almost any boat in plastic, you've got to transport the boat on its sides or upside down to prevent oil-canning during the heat of summer... The Romany has a key-hole cockpit which allows sit down and then bring legs in and vice -versa. The hatches are extremely dry. They are built to take punishment. Primary stability is excellent as is secondary. The boat tracks very well and carves turns easily while on edge. I love mine and my wife likes it a lot. I prefer glass boats over plastic, until I hit an oyster bed...
