It doesn't matter. What ever you get, you'll soon want to get 3 or 4 more boats anyway
See if you can paddle both. Take them to the play park and play around. Everyone speaks wisdom on the nature of the boats. I just took both down a big water run and felt neither had a clear advantage. Minor differences abound.
On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.
