Hey ya'll. I joined this site to ask this simple question:
I currently own a P&H Scorpio. I live a few feet from Everglades National Park, a place where oysters come up to kiss kayaks at every low tide and plastic makes mucho sense. Well, I was offered a 2006 Nordkapp LV for an unbelievably low price, and wonder if I'd be a fool to pass up this opportunity. Being poor, this means I must sell my Scorpio.
28y/o and relatively athletic
Am I losing versatility or gaining everything? I know little about expensive kayaks because I didn't plan on owning one until retirement. Does my size simply make this LV impractical as a touring boat? Is this too much boat for someone with only a year's experience at sea? Has anyone paddled both these enough to fairly compare them? Thoughts? Ideas? Help! kayaking community. Let me drink from your founts of knowledge!
