  Eddyline Caribbean
  Posted by: djo on Apr-08-13 4:13 PM (EST)
 

Rotomold boats are heavy. You might look into something made from either a more modern material like the Eddyline Caribean- 14 (http://www.eddyline.com/kayak-models/caribbean-14) or a composite. Yes rotomold boats do oil can a bit and as a result some of the speed is lost by hull deformation, but it is not a huge effect. The "short and fat" nature of most SOT boats is a bigger deal. The Eddyline boat (which I have never paddled so I am only going by specs) is 14' long a still chunky 29" wide and a weight of 50 lbs. Still not great but better than any roto boat I have seen.
