Yes - we are in fact widening the scope of the boats we review. Over the past few years there has been a trend to smaller touring boats being offered, purchased and paddled. The sport of Sea Kayaking is continuously evolving and we have to change with it. If you look at Sea Kayaker over the past 29 years you will see the evolution has been continual.
I was surprised, on a recent tour, to find our group had the only long boats on the island where we were camping. If we do not stay involved with the new directions of boats and paddlers we aren't doing justice to paddlers or the industry.
