New Kayaker!

I'm new to kayaking, I just purchased a new Coleman hooligan 85 the other day. So far I have only taken it out once and that was in a rain storm on a local lake. How is the hooligan for some mild rivers and lake kayaking? I'm only in it 200 bucks so I'm sure I'll be getting my moneys worth out of it.

That is not really a good river boat. How ever..... I am sure that you could take it down a calm river or lake.

Spend the season kayaking some of the great lakes in the area. If you really take to kayaking I would invest in a better boat with thicker and better plastic. Check out the islands around the Frisco Marina and grab a beer afterwords right there at the restaurant there.. There is a kayak shop in Frisco on main street that has gear too. They can show you what kind of gear you will eventually need if you want to really commit to the sport.

Thanks for the input. That's what I figured I would do was try it for awhile on a cheap boat, and spend more on a nicer one in a year or two.
