  Any kayak can be fun

When I visit my brother I often use his second boat which is a Cape Charles 17 (Chesapeake Light Craft). Basically an unsophisticated 24" wide hard chine wooden tank. I always enjoy myself in it, and have been in all kinds of conditions and mild surf. I think with a lot of kayaks the basic principals far outweigh the differences and allow you to enjoy a lot of variations in crafts. As long as it's not a severe weather cocking boat and the seat is comfortable, I can have a good time. What's amazing is in groups with other kayakers with longer, faster boats, I can easily keep up without killing myself and I don't consider myself excessively strong or fast.
