  Big Difference Between Boats
  Posted by: dafishman on Jun-22-13 1:52 PM (EST)
 

There is a big difference between the two boats you are looking at. The Stellar is probably one of the faster 16 boats around while the Santee is going to be much slower to the same paddler. Unless you are a much stronger paddler, I envision problems with you keeping up with him.

Also has he test paddled an S16? The S16 is a few inches skinnier than your old kayaks and has a very rounded bottom. While it is not unstable it will be much tippier than your old kayak.
