  They tend to be women
  Posted by: Celia on Mar-24-13 12:20 PM (EST)
 

Who spent years being jammed into guy's boats with padding because it was guys making the boats. Apparently women didn't have any money to buy boats....

Sexist rant aside, one option is to look around used as well. There are some older models out there that were originally designed for down to kids, often old school WW boats, that are dirt cheap and are fun starter boats for smaller folks. Roll and maneuver very nicely. I picked up one for $150 and it is not leaving - it is a great little boat for crawling around of creeks and dragging over beaver dams, and it is the only boat I have ever been able to reliably hand roll.

The last part is probably why I won't let her go - at least until I can hand roll something else. :-)
