I was wondering if anyone else was in a similar situation and made the move to a kayak. The newer yaks seem fairly light for example under 80 or 90 pounds and fairly short. I’m thinking the lessened weight might make them easier to paddle versus my larger canoe but have no idea. I am also very intrigued by the pedal drive boats. I think they would best suit me but oh my lord they are expensive. I also like the fact that the newer yaks have really nice looking seats; that is also a plus for my back. Thanks for taking the time to look and If anyone wants to head out fishing let me know I am game and if you’re a flyfisherman I have a ton of flies that I have tied for a possible trip to the coast and others that I think would be awesome for river/creek bass. Also if there are any birdhunters on here I have an awesome German Shorthaired pointer I plan on taking back to the prairie for a few trips this fall.
