  length and uses
  Posted by: kray416376 on Jun-11-13 2:20 PM (EST)

we have actually tried out a few different things and know that we want to stay in the 14-16 range. i am looking at 14.5 15 primarily. husband is looking more 16 maybe 17 since he will do more overnight trips.

we are looking to cover distance with good time and less effort on flat and open water, but also want the ability for sea with out buying another kayak :( hence the choice of length.

i am aware that finding what we want in our price range is quite difficult and is why we are looking at used. we have looked at and/or tried in water several we found on craigslist and most arent going to work for one reason or another.

the necky elaho sold and we are going to try the tracer today, but then will still need a second comparable boat. we mostly paddle together so even though husband will want a bit larger for cargo, i want to be able to keep up during day paddles.
