  18 ft kayak hype
  Posted by: PHILIPJEDLICKA on Apr-04-13 12:11 PM (EST)

I bought last summer an xp18 which was another example of chinese made crap being passed off as European (Seabird is another). I then traded it in for a Seaward Chilco 18'. I was impressed by their speed and storage capacity. BUT stability and rough water characteristics were bad on both and did not inspire confidence. I went back to what I did like before my bout of insanity and went back to a Valley Kayaks and got a Etain RM (do anything, go anywhere and rugged).

 Great Products from the Buyers' Guide:

The Kayak Wing

Boat Loader

Paddling Gloves
