Chatham vs. NDK Explorer
Posted by: aocpaddle on Apr-17-13 10:14 AM (EST)
For me, the Explorer has a similar stability profile but is much better tracking. In following seas, does not get pushed around as much on wave tops, especially with skeg deployed. It should be noted, my Romany does not have a skeg. Seems like it would be much easier to cover distance in the Explorer while still possessing the familiar stability. Definitely more difficult to turn but still responsive on edge. More space for camping. Just wondering if the Chatham 17 is a similar design approach for less $$$ and lbs.
