  Kayaks are not fast
  Posted by: mintjulep on Mar-27-13 4:51 PM (EST)

Paddlers are fast. It's really about the engine.

There is surprisingly little difference in the drag vs. speed curves of any 12 to 14 foot kayak at the speeds that most normal paddlers will go.

So unless you are a truly competitive racer it's a waste of time to worry about how "fast" your boat is. Just go out and enjoy yourself.
