Still checking out touring boats...I've paddled my husband's Looksha IV (fiberglass) a few times and except for the seat, didn't have any complaints.
Now he's located a really tempting deal on a newer Looksha IV. I looked at it today. The seat is MUCH improved over his 02 and it's made of an "advanced composite", which is lighter than his boat. The Necky web site says its stronger and more durable.
I know the Necky has a weathercocking issue, but it come with a rudder that could be used in adverse conditions.
So I'm looking for input, especially on the material.
I's appreciate some input.
