  My Experience
  Posted by: Kudzu on Jun-12-13 7:26 PM (EST)
 

1.) Is it easier to right the kayak when loaded? I've read something about the righting moment based on ballast.

I Find it no harder. Just a bit slower.

2.) Just how much flexibility is needed to roll a kayak? Due to injuries my lower back is not very flexible, as in partially fused. Most videos I watch of people doing various rolls looks like they have far more flexibilty than I have.

If you're sitting in a chair, can you reach down to tie your shoes? That's about all the flexibility I require.
