I sail on the Chesapeake and on days there's not much wind or when we're gunkholing, we want kayaks to explore and exercise. SO just bought an Eddyline Skylark and being me, I'll probably buy something too sporty for my current meager skill level. I'm fit, 6'3"/202lbs and if I'm rational, I'm thinking plastic 14-17 foot transitional kayak, but could be talked into anything in a $1000-$2300 price range. Going to lash them to either the lifelines or foredeck of the sailboat and use them a lot, I figure. Folks here into these things? I love all things water and I'm excited about adding a new way to be afloat and active.
