We made it to the lake and recorded some video. This is the first time the wife or I have attempted using the video feature of her Nikon camera.
I hope you can see that using the oars is quite easy and the kayak tracks extremely well. I also like the control that you have with the oars, you can make position adjustments using one oar without putting down your fishing rod. The oars that I am currently using are aluminum 6 1/2 ft. I tried a pair of 5 ft wooden oars and they didn’t work as well for me.
You really get some weird comments from others who have never seen a kayak like this one – some good some not so good. My reaction to those who don’t like it is that – it is different strokes for different folks.
This was the first time my wife had ever been in a kayak and it has been many years since she has been a row boat of any type. She felt very comfortable and did not find the kayak to be unstable.
She had no trouble getting in or out of the kayak and says that it would be great exercise. All of this coming from a woman who will be 62 in Sept. I think that says a lot about your product.
