Summary: This was the first kayak I ever owned;
|Loon Kayak by Old Town|
Use: Beginner kayak, flat-water paddling.
Pros: Awesome, 3-layer plastic construction. It is stiffer, stronger and more durable than just about any other plastic out there. Comfortable and easy to paddle. Huge cockpit opening, big enough to bring my 50 lb. dog along for the ride. Super stable.
Cons: Most of these were built with no bulkheads, so use float-bags for added safety. Cockpit opening is so big that there is only 1 spray skirt made that fits. No bungees on the deck. Easy fix to install your own. (See picture for example) Very wide – great for beginners, like paddling a bath tub if you are an advanced kayaker.
