  Canak vs Advantage
  Posted by: Dilligaf0220 on Feb-12-14 10:14 AM (EST)

The Canak is slower, by a noticeable margin. It also feels roomier, even with a deck. They both turn around the same rate with offside edging, but the Canak feels much more solid on edge than the Advantage did with it's gunnel at the water.

I do prefer a bar footrest instead of the kayak pegs in a Canak, but adjusting a bar on the water would be nigh impossible.

They both spear into chop, but the Canak won't ship water.

I looked at picking up someone's Advantage, but most of my paddling is on Lake Ontario and the Advantage just did not feel great in chop.
