Yes, I'm aware of the size issue and actually I'm 5'5" and 145lbs. so that's not an issue. I intend to use it for day use, not long distance touring and I will probably not be taking it into the ocean.
Mostly small rivers, lakes and streams of which there are many here in the "Jersey Pines".
The front storage and bulkhead is definitely someting that I feel is an advantage but don't know if the $300 or so difference in price is warranted for that and that's pretty much the biggest difference I see between the Tsunami and the Tribute. The Tribute is rated at, I think 240lbs. and the Tsunamis are rated about 75lbs. higher. All are 12' in length but the Tribute weighs only 40lbs. which really appeals to me.
What do you think?
Thanks so much for this feedback. It's obvious that all of you did some thinking about this before responding and it't appreciated.
