    Arrow NBR: kayaking

    in my effort to muck up the bike board with non-bike related threads, here goes...

    i'm looking for a kayak. does anyone have a sit-on-top in the 12-14 ft range and about 27-30 inches in width that i can paddle for a day? i'll be using it to paddle the ocean/bay to get from flat to flat. i just want to try one before i purchase.

    I have a skinny, decked, sit inside, downriver, tippy racing kayak. You'd probably do some swimming with it. I also have a couple of canoes if you're interested. One fiberglass racing canoe that needs a little work.

    check your PM. We have two very very nice kayaks. But we're in Austin. Any chance you can come here and paddle?

    Sweet! You'll like the yaking. I'm currently in the market for a sit in. Mel, are you selling the canoes?

    How much paddling are you going to do? A rudder might not be needed. Have you looked around at buying or renting one? Have you looked around yet? If you're looking for recommendations, here are two personal ones: Canoesport over near Bellaire and REI on Westheimer.

    i'm going to be in a lot of wind and current so i'll need the rudder. i've paddled this boat without a rudder and it's annoying in the above conditions over long distances.

    I've got one I'd sell. It needs a bit of fiber glassing.

    There are plenty of places to rent them down near Corpus, Aransas Pass and Port A. fairly resonable and they have the types made for that kind of water. You can rent them from the biggest kayak store place in Austin too (forgot the name). That same store also sells used ones, if you find the site you can see what they have for sale on line.

    I'm sure there are kayak rental place around Galvaston if that's your coastal destination. Just get on line or look in a phone book, you'll find them.

    I'v edone a lot of looking at Kayaks myself, just not ready to buy. The one you're looking at looks perfect for bayfishing. I agree about the need for a rudder.
