I hope you're well. My boss has gotten the yak addiction BAD. After getting out with a buddy of ours (thanks, Dale!) and then doing lots of research (and asking a ton of good questions), he's hoping to purchase a yak next week. He plans to demo, and he's being smart about his purchase.
However, he asked me today about a boat ACK told him about that I don't know much about - the Viking Reload. So I thought I'd ask about it. If you own one or have paddled one, what did you think of it? I plan to compile the information for him. He plans to demo before buying, but he'd like to be prepared.
He's a tall guy, but really thin (if he weighs 200 lbs, it's soaking wet). He plans to sometimes fish and sometimes just paddle around. I think he plans to use it mostly on lakes, but with some possibility of marsh annd coastal use. I don't think he cares if he can stand or not. He's not a super-serious fisherman, so it's general paddle-abilty is probably more important even than its angler readiness.
Thanks for your help! I'll look forward to passing on the information.
I'll also be posting this to the TKF Facebook page, so feel free to reply in either place.
