^ I like that.

I paddle Hurricane and Eddyline right now because of their length to weight ratio. I want a touring kayak but have a temperamental back.

Both have great products and great support. Eddyline is heavier, hurricane is weaker.

I have many hours logged in a wilderness systems, and it took me 2 people to carry it... Strongest ABS material. My favorite so far, but the weight was too much for me.

Hurricane seats have the best support IMO. Eddyline seats make my butt fall asleep and give me lower back pain.

LOL, that bow hatch cover caught my eye, Kevin. I have the same vintage Eddyline (sans the custom decor), but in deep red. Found it used on Craigslist. Loved the quality of the boat so much, went with Eddyline for my touring boat. Have the same ACA sticker in my 14-footer. BTW, the newer Eddyline Infinity seat is much more comfortable.

Have you ever considered a Bumfortable?

Kayak seat. A lot of WaterTribers (those dedicated paddlers who do the 300-mile Everglades Challenge each year) swear by them:

I'm a big fan of Jackson Kayaks too. Their kayaks are very high quality with a lot of thought and innovation put into them. My wife and I just bought 2 new ones.

I'm a Hobbie man myself. Love the hands free aspect. I currently have the Hobbie Revolution 13'. Looking to get a tandam as well. I paddle around in small flat water bayous here in south Louisiana. Main drawback to these boats is the price.

That was some great feedback you got on the different types of kayaks. We currently live in the San Antonio area and my wife and I are fairly new to kayaking. We started out on the low end by purchasing two Sun Dolphin Aruba 10's. They have a decent kayak that is stable and has some nice features. We are ready to upgrade because we want something that is a little more friendly in Class II rapids. My Sun Dolphin takes on a lot of water over the bow if the rapid is large. I'm 6'1, 190 and I fit well in the kayak but just feel that I need something with a 300 lb. weight limit as compared to 250 for the Sun Dolphin. There are some very nice rivers around San Antonio that I would recommend. The Medina River near Bandera is small, fun and beautiful. We've been on three sections of the upper Guadalupe and also down the South Llano. Last winter we even went to the Estuaries near Port Aransas. Let me know if you would like more information. It's a blast!!
