Thanks for all the excellent feedback. Yes, I neglected to mention the model of the Swift I was referring to. It's the Saranac.
I live in southwest New Hampshire. There are only a few boat dealers in my area, so either way, I'm gonna have to travel.
A place about 45 minutes away has 1 new Lincoln Chebeaque and 1 used (a year old).
The new one is yellow over white with a black trim layed up in fiberglass. Sale price is $1876.00.
The used one is Lime over white with black trim layed up in a combination of fiberglass and kevlar. It also has a kevlar keel strip down the bottom of the kayak (a $300.00 adder according to the shop).
The kayak is 1 year old and in "great" condition. Used price is $2000.00. Think I might take a ride up there this weekend and see how they fit.
Again, thanks everyone for this wealth of feedback and suggestions! It's much appreciated!!
