Re: S&G: Next boat
In Response To: Re: S&G: Next boat *PIC* ()

Hi John,
Decks aren't an issue as we are surf ski paddlers. Plan was to utilise an existing hull which I have done before (Pax 20 surf ski). Initially I was after a compromise ski ie one that I would be happy enough paddling if I had to. I'm not much of a cruiser. 6'2/220 ocean ski paddler. I like the fast boats.
Wife is complete opposite.
I read a good review of the Epic V6 which tipped me more in favour of a 16' boat plus I already have a couple of surf skis so I don't really need a compromise boat.
