However, I can recommend a dealer that carries Native and will not sell you a boat just to sell you a boat. They are very, very good about listening to what you want to do, asking the right questions, and helping to guide you to a choice that is good for you.
I am not affiliated with them except having been a satisfied customer.
The dealer is Appomattox River Company. Their web site is www.paddleva.com. They are the worlds largest kayak and canoe retailer. Worlds. Despite that, they maintain the perspective of a small shop. Everyone who works there paddles. They use the boats they sell. And you get Mom & Pop service and integrity. They can ship to most places cheaper than a lot of stores can sell off the floor.
They'll give you an honest opinion of any boat they carry.
