I’m relatively new to kayaks, but not new to boating. I’ve been sailing my whole life, and have a few sailboats including a wood lightning.
I’ve been using a too small for me kayak up to this point, and have been looking for an inexpensive upgrade. Eventually I’d like to build one of the plywood kit kayaks, but for now my budget is somewhat limited.
I know you guys are knowledgeable on hull design, and different hull shapes for different applications, so I thought I’d ask this question here.
I found a 14’ kayak for sale that appears to be an old whitewater kayak that someone has added a skeg to. So, my question is how would this kayak be out on the intracoastal waterways, or in a lake? Besides the skeg, is there anything else I could do to make it track straighter?
Or is it more work than it’s worth. I appreciate any input.
I couldn’t get my pic to load on the forum pic loader. Hopefully the imgur link for you. Thanks.
