Next season we would like to be able to do some paddling.
MY wife and I have been doing some talking.
My first thought was to buy a Chesapeake Light Craft Kit and build a nice wooden kayak. That sounds like a lot of fun simply for the challenge of building our own boat. However, the model I would like to build is an 18' boat.
My neighbor kayaks and claims this is a great boat. I just don't see me ever being able to store it on my decks. Plus I would have to store two of them as my wife wants a pair, one for each of us.
My second thought was a smaller recreational Kayak from somebody like Old Town. Found this model in a web search.
At 10'6", it looks like I could store two on the decks of my 36' boat.
I know there are members out there that carry kayaks on board.
True Blue for one. Blue what do you and others recommend?
We are beginner paddlers.
Just want to be able to explore our inland lake by paddling.
Maybe a trip to the beach on the big lake in calm conditions.
No white water or fast moving river currents and would like to be able to lash them down on the deck of our 36' sailboat in calm conditions.
