I would never recommend anything kayak related like kayak foot braces. ?
Never had a seat back either. Never bothered me, even on a 6 to 8 hr paddle day. Tried one once or twice and didn't like it.
My legs are either feet flat on hull (most), legs crossed at ankles and heels almost under seat, or legs out stretched straight (least).
I bet that Tranq will turn if you use a bow wedge but there are no guarantees about you staying in the boat.
wonder if I should just ante up for exactly what I want
So, I'd like to test a Swift Prospector 14, probably pack. But closest is at an outfitter in Rochester, and I'd feel bad for the other whether I bought from them or RRO. The trip yo Rochester does allow me to test it a Hemlock Peregrine.
Yellowcanoe - I really appreciate your advice but I just don't lean well, and work hard to stay upright. I just don't think my balance can be improved at my age I feel I can turn better in Prospector than Tranq and track well enough at least with double blade.
So the used one became more appealing with more data. 2018, reported in immaculate condition, includes carbon yoke and carbon everything and in range of 30% below the new price. It isn't the layup with basalt/innegra but is of course 4 pounds lighter.
What to do.
What to do.
I don't know...4 months later he still has no real direction....?
