My 10-year-old loves paddling but my Nordkapp LV is a little more than he can handle. Last summer we rented a Wilderness Systems Tsunami SP, and he loved it. Does anyone have a lead on a Tsunami SP, or a Piccolo, or something comparable, anywhere between Ontario and Massachusetts? I want to get out and have some fun with him this Summer!

Also check out the CD Raven. Great boat for his size.

I don't think you can do better than the Tsunami SP. I had to modify/raise the thigh braces to fit my son, but otherwise, perfect boat. I like the safety the bulkheads and decklines bring.

The 120 is almost 5" wider and 3" deeper than the SP, and rated for 100 pounds more. That's a huge difference for a small paddler.

Piccilo hasn't been made for years|

Piccilo hasn't been made for years so if you find one buy it. The big difference between the boats is dry hatches, the SP has them and the Piccilo doesn't. The SP is probably the ultimate kids boat and unfortunatly has a price to match.
