  Avocet LV
  Posted by: Celia on Mar-25-13 11:34 AM (EST)

I believe Alison Sigethy paddles that when she is not full greenland, at least she was when I saw her at the last Downeast Symposium. Alison is tall but is a weed, and fond of tight fits. I spent a day in that boat myself, and would put it strongly on the list for a sub-120 lb paddler. At 130-135 I felt that this boat could actually take less than me and still get a good waterline. Cockpit fit/ thigh length always needs to be confirmed by an in-person sit-in of course. The only reason I didn't go for the boat was that I already had one which I felt fit the bill as well. But if I didn't have a smaller person's boat that I had grown comfy with, I'd have been looking to buy the Avocet LV.

I hadn't mentioned it because OPer is asking for a cheaper option. But I'd put this boat on the list if fiberglass was within the target price.
