  Fit indeed!

I love the manueverability of the Delphin and that lovely sound it makes when you break the stern loose and skid.

But I could not paddle one for moe than 45 minutes or so without everything from my waist down going numb, regardless of adjustments. I also could never quite find the sweet spot for a consistent hanging draw . Probably not the boat's fault, but it does go to show that boat fit has everything to do with what one can, and can not, do with it. A least comfortably and easily.

My Romany, on the other hand, fits ME like an old pair of well broken-in Saucony track shoes. I can paddle it for hours without fatigue ( or shin splints ;-) and stroke combos, draws, braces, etc.are instant, effortless, and instinctual.

So, as everyone here says, "dem, demo, demo ... ". And for more than ten minutes a ride.

Best,

Lewesbound
