The boat arrived at 11am. It is beautiful! In fact, it is so beautiful that I am thinking of just putting it in my living room as a sort of modern sculpture (after I wax it, of course). Hate to think of getting it scratched up by putting it in the water. I love the color. The orange is extremely nice.
Hey Guys! I'm putting up my boat for the winter this coming weekend, and I wanted to let you guys know that it's been a great season. It's a fabulous boat. I think I have a number people looking into buying their own next season. I'll keep hounding them and see if I can't send a few sales your way.
Well after paddling my new Daytripper all summer, I've come up with a few conclusions. This Kayak thinks its a coast guard cutter. It is absolutely amazing at how it handles rough water. It invites you to stay out there and play longer than you would ever want under these conditions.
Paddling with the tide it comes up with incredible hull speed and unparalleled stability, with or against the current. Under flat water conditions it reaches hull speed in seconds. It easily maneuvers with basic paddling skills. This kayak does not need a rudder. I have a very unique kayak. And I am very happy the N.C. Kayak people found me up here in Canada and sold me this boat.
I have been paddling my Daytripper for the past several weeks and I am extremely pleased with the combination of speed, stability and easy turning. Although many say that having all these characteristics in one boat is not possible I now know that it is.
"I love this boat, it's fantastic!"
