In Response To: Re: Strip: Ootek-X ()

Sorry Erik, I wouldn't have a clue. The standard Ootek works fine for my wife and for me, 160lbs and 220lbs respectively.

I would think this version is weighted more toward the more portly... Like myself... I would think paddler's between 190 and 240 lbs would be optimum, but fine some way beyond those weights too.

Unless you are over six ft, have big feet, and are over 220lbs, I would stick with the standard Ootek, unless you want to carry camping gear. My feet are 44 euro, and that is the max for a six foot person in neoprene booties, unless you alter the deck on the standard ootek. The longer your legs, the more this is an issue. My legs are not that long.

Of course, at the risk of altering the lines, visually, of the boat, one can always raise the sheer forward of the cockpit an inch or so on most boats.
