If she's just starting out (and you actually *like* her
), you probably don't want to put the gf in a Siren. I'm not certain on their production status, but I've heard it referred to as a "flip machine" by a couple of folks who've demoed it??
I've never paddled one myself, but have been OTR with an acquaintance who owns one, and she seemed to be having a difficult time with it?
The EZG and Jackson Funs suggested here are comparable boats-- (I trust all 3 of these posters, but don't know anything about the Pyranhas so I can't comment on it... sorry COUNT!
). If the gf's just starting out, the EZG may be a little edgy and grabby for her-- the Jackson, on the other hand, is comfy, it's light, and handles well as both a beginning boat and a playboat/ river runner as her skills grow. I've paddled and like both, but I prefer and own a Jackson.
