Changing water of choice
Long time open water kayaker looking for a little input: I currently have a Dagger Alchemy S, and a Pyrahna Fusion S as rock garden boats, neither are great WW boats. I am used to low volume, tight fitting touring boats. I am at the upper range of weight on the Fusion, making it even worse as a WW boat.
I have tried on a Dagger Green Boat and the LL Stinger, hooked on the stinger XP for use on extended trips, and it is the closest to the touring boats I am used to.
I cant wrap my head around not having a sealed bulkhead in the rear, why have access and not have the ability to seal it up?
Also, is it common to not have flotation bags front and rear in creekers since turning your boat into a cleopatra needle is not a huge concern? I have a solid roll in either direction, but still have not mastered not leaning upriver, so wet exit is still pretty frequent, not a huge fan of a large volume boat full of water.
I am the first of my "group" to start river running, so I have become the test dummy.
