Thanks for the advice. I have decided to let this one slide on by. A lot of response from discussion about the weather-cocking issue on a different forum + research.
My heart still beats for the new CD Cypress...price & availablity are the major issues there.
I have been trying and researching a variety of boats, but nothing like hearing from other paddlers to help make the right decision.
My CD Kestrel 140 is a great boat for most conditions, but would like an open water and gulf side paddle boat that can take the finiky Florida weather.
Thanks for the advise.
