I THOUGHT ABOUT A INFLATABLE PONTOON BOAT FOR MORE STABILITY. ANYONE HAVE ONE OF THESE?
Thought about these too...but I can see my stupid a$$ punching a hole in it with a hook...in the middle of a lake.
For just paddling around I would say sit in. They are typically easier to paddle out of. If you are planning to fish I would say sit on top. Little more stable and offer better casting posture. I fish out of my sit in but sometimes get in situations I wish my elbows were a little more free.
Came up on these...thought I'd post it for you. It would certainly be easier to pack around deflated. I'm guessing you might get pushed around on windy days. But I don't know that.
Facebook market place has bunch for sale. Probably save a good deal.
I have a couple of these myself, very stable, my wife and kids really enjoy these,a kayak is similar to a canoe and wider is better, they have adjustable foot rests also.
In our area, they're running right around "new" price believe it or not.
You been to Dunhams yet?
Yeah, they've got a sale on today and I downloaded that coupon and thanks. I weight 275 which is horrible and worst I'll be as I'm working on it. SO, i gotta go with a "husky" size kayak. Doc told me I was a fatass. He was right of course and we're pretty good friends.
They must have been feeding better at the P.O., you were nowhere near that when I saw you last.
When you get that Yak, bring it out to the creek by me.
My recommendation would be to buy 1 to start with and then take it out and let everyone have a turn. That way you can see if that will meet your needs or not, or what you wish it had, before you buy 3 of them. Also, don't pay a lot more for an "angler" edition. Installing rod holders is very easy to do yourself.
We have 4 kayaks in my family. I've got a 10' Old Town sit in, my wife has a 12' Perception sit on top, and my kids each have 10' Sun Dolphins. While I prefer mine, I can use my wife's with little issue, but I have no desire to even try the Sun Dolphins on the water. I tried getting in and out of it in the yard and it was nearly impossible for me (cockpit too small).
I have a perception pescador 12 fishing sit on top that I'm going to sell. If you are interested let me know. It is a great kayak.
For the fishing one, definitely get sit on top. I'm a big guy too. 250 and that stated weight limit isn't correct on most. Sure it will keep you afloat but water is going to be coming in through the scupper holes and be a bear to paddle. Most people say around 75% is where you should be. I went super cheap on my first and it was junk. I upgraded to a bonafide and actually enjoy kayak fishing now. The seat and secondary stability is most important in my opinion. You can test them if there is a dealer close to you.
Yeah JR, I love my job now but it consists of sitting in a Control Room here at the Power Plant looking at computer screens 12 hrs each shift. Obesity magnet.
My new job consists of sitting down most of the time also, I just tell everyone that I'm allergic to my job because it makes me swell up.
