  Atlantic LV
  Posted by: RubricOfRuin on Apr-08-13 6:02 AM (EST)
 

I paddled one for the past 2 years. Pretty stable boat, not very fast. Very planning hull - has a tendency to surf anything and everything. In following seas this unintentional planning can be quite worrisome in the beginning. OK to roll, but back deck can be bit high for someone your (and mine :D) height. Subjective opinion is the boat is slow. But it may be just me. Altogether I like it, but if I had the money I would probably go and buy Xcite S in Hardcore version :). Not that Atlantic has shoddy built - it's a regular GF layout, but it is plenty stiff and was paddled away from a few hard impacts (twice by K1 kayaks :D :D :D)

Oh, and I'm almost your size.
