will swamp, so
not suitable for rough conditions.
I mostly paddle a 10 year old SOT that I love.
i have rolled it though don't "have a roll."
my 10 year old has over 10,000 miles paddled and i can out paddle most "serious" paddlers i encounter on the water. have yet to go with a group that i cannot keep pace with on day trip of up to 20 miles.
There are "serious" rough water and long distance paddlers on this forum that might never see this boat in their group because it is just not suitable for those conditions/uses. Sometimes the motor (paddler) can make up for their boat, but sometimes not possible.
I consider myself a novice due to lack of a more advanced skill set, and my awarenes that there are places i can't go.
Avid paddlers do use rec boats. And I understand that skill sets are often limited by how far you push which can be limited by equipment. That being said
i can take my SOT just about anywhere locally. (remember im in south florida)
