I've decided I'm purchasing a kayak this year and would like to seek the advice of those in the group. Any input on a new purchase would be appreciated. To narrow down input, my kayaking will be flat water and fresh water. I'm a very experienced canoeist dating back to my youth, in regards to paddling, but am not experienced with kayaks. I most likely will not do all-day, long paddling but more along the lines of an afternoon or evening. So, it's more about getting out for a few hours and if I can do a cache or two along the way, great. Please post here or feel free to e/m me. Thanks for your opinions!
Also, I've seen the post about the sale at Old Town Canoe, unfortunately I will be out of the country during that sale.
