I know this is a pretty lame topic... that few, if anyone could contribute... but I don't know of any other place to ask the question... so please refrain from flaming, if you are not interested just move on and boat!
( and yes I have been talking with SOTAR about this)
I am wondering if anyone out there has tried a 10' and an 11' SOTAR SL IK?I am looking for first hand experience in the two different sizes.
I have just been paddling the 10 footer. and I am about to have a custom boat made per the fall sale... wondering if I have any advantage of trying to get a 10'6" or 10'8" vs jumping up to the 11.
I loved the 10 footer. So easy to paddle. felt like a kayak. not a barge..
But as the water got bigger and more difficult... it started to feel a bit tipsy... and did not instill much confidence ( however I was starting to get used to this)
ANyways... wondering if anyone can comment and make a recommendation for a 10'6" or an 11'... SOTAR recommended I just do the stock 11'. and I probably will. but wondering if there is any benenfit to trying for an in between size.
I want the boat to remain playful, easy to maneuver, fun... I want a little more stability but don't want it to feel barge like.
the 10 footer has a 200lb weight limit... ( too low for me) , but the 11' has a 375lb weight limit ( much higher than I need) .... thus im considering an in between size...
and I will only have one chance in my whole life to have a custom made IK so I want to get it right this time. Thanks ya'll....
oh and for the record... I also own a tandem hyside padillac... so I have the stable barge category covered...
