First-Time IK Purchase - Looking For Advice
OK, here goes: What I'm looking for would allow me to do some III or (at most) IV-, but ideally would also have enough space for self-support for overnight trips.
With that in mind, I'm wondering whether a double would make more sense than a single - She Who Must Be Obeyed will be accompanying me on at least a few day trips. Beyond that, I'm pretty good-sized - 6'3" and about 225, which would, I think, affect boat choice as well. Maybe one of each? But I digress.
Not looking to break the bank, but am definitely willing to spend for a durable, high-quality boat that will last for a good long time. Probably not at the stratospheric heights of Sotar, but that's another story . . .
Along those lines, are there used options that anyone would recommend? Checked Airkayak, Sierra South and NRS for their stocks, and will keep browsing, but if anyone out there's had a good experience (with either a make or a dealer) would love to hear about it.
Thanks, and happy paddling (and skiing)!
