Adventurers choice kayak is the Adirondack 12
From upstate NY to the FL keys, this kayak is perfect. Big cockpit and super stable for this previous canoe paddler. And it is fast and smooth, a helpful combination when getting bumped by a playful manatee, for a quick getaway. Responsive and very easy to turn. Great in lakes and rivers, and surprisingly good in choppy ocean bays. Perfect size for car transport. The seat is comfortable for 2-3 hours. We bought our boats from the folks at Collinsville Canoe and Kayak and felt all our questions were answered and we agreed this boat was best for us. And the prettiest boats on the water.
