  Moved from an Alchemy L
  Posted by: wavespinner on Mar-18-13 8:09 AM (EST)
 

Went from the Alchemy L to the Delphin 155 and picked up some speed/efficiency. I tip the scales at 188 but not sure if that makes much difference in this case. Both nice boats but neither was designed with the primary mission being to carry a load over distance. I may be flaying a deceased dobbin here, but the context is that a friend was recently sold a Delphin as a "great sea kayak" and it hasn't worked out well. If you won't be covering distances on a regular basis but will be messing in frothy stuff, the fun doesn't get much better than a Delphin.
