Suggest a good used kayak for an intermediate paddler
I haven't kayaked in a few years...but our family bought a raft this year, and I'll be on the river a ton this year, both guiding and multiday private trips with the kids.
I have a decent roll, although often in rapids I'll swim (big wuss here). Good roll in flat water practice but I turn into a quivering bag of shit when I need to hit my roll in rapids.
Not interested in anything past class IV for now. Something good for going down-river, but I'd like to be able to surf and play. A good all-around boat.
I'm 6' and 175lbs. My wife would probably like to get in it on some days just to screw around, she's 5'8" and 120lbs.
I learned on an RPM, spent some time in a Mr. Clean (I suck, and felt that boat was not stable enough for me) also paddled a Savage Beast a few times, felt like it was too big.
I'm not going to spend a ton of loot on a new boat. something used with decent rigging. If you have something for sale it'd be even better if you're in N. NM. if you're in the ark valley that'd be cool too as I need a reason to justify going up there to work and chill. If you're in SE Utah I'll be launching on the Juan in a week and a half.
Suggest a boat, or let me know if you have something for sale. cheap = good
