Just curious as to why you went with the 14' instaid of the 13' E?

Thats a good question Steve. We wanted the biggest boat we could handle r2in and we knew a little bigger boat would provide extra stability for bigger water. You really have to stay on top of it in the 14 as its a big boat for two people and always have a paddle in the water going through big features to make minor adjustments on the boat angle. After getting used to handling that big of boat we are definitely glad we went with the 14. I would probably recommend the 13 to anyone looking for a boat for mostly r2in though as its much easier for two people to handle.
