My new KAYAK!

Yay!!  I got my new kayak and I am so excited.  I’ve had a kayak for a couple of years now (check out my “Hobbies” page).  Anyway, the old one is considered a touring boat.  That means it’s long and narrow and used for longer trips- usually cuts through the water a little easier.  On the other hand, it’s hard to carry and not as stable as some of the wider boats.  After a suggestion from my Dad (he made it over and over), I decided to sell the old one and buy a new one.

This is the NEW one.

I researched for a crazy amount of time.  I’m so particular when I buy something that is expensive.  I also want to find the one I’ll be happiest with once I’ve made the purchase.  First, I checked out the Old Town Vapor.  Rented it, tested it out…thought I was convinenced to go with that model.  Then, after a trip to REI, I was introduced to the Perception Prodigy.  Love at first sight.  No hesitation.  I ordered it online and waited with anticipation.  It finally came in and I took it out for it’s maiden voyage on 7/7/11.  It was everything I had hoped it would be.  You can expect me to post lots of pictures from future trips.  I’m so happy!
