My first boats:
Started with a Prijon Seayak - a great, bombproof all-rounder.
Feathercraft Khatsalano S - beautiful Greenland style boat and fast. Unfortunately got annoyed by having to maintain it so recently sold it after 8 years.
My current boats:
Paddling Perfection Euro-X - fast boat and well behaved in the rough stuff (non-Kiwis can check out www.paddlingperfection.com
to see what I'm talking about)
Fenn XT surfski - even faster boat, great fun for catching runs.
Cleaver-X K1 - very fast, but only for flatwater!
I'm currently lusting after a Chatham 16 in plastic. Would be a great fun play boat and a secure boat for my wife who's an occasional paddler.
