Don't do it Gary, get separate kayaks, their big heavy and you have to paddle in synch together...Kinda of a pain in the ass.

I've talked with quite a few that have them and they love them. Just make sure it has the sliding seat for solo use. And you don't have to paddle in sink unless ya want it ta look purty. Very Happy

Thanks guys. I was just thinking it would be easier with the kids for now and then down the road get a single for myself.It does have sliding seat and foot pegs to move for single.I was told it is heavy about 70lbs or so not sure what a single is.

70lbs is about in the ballpark for that size yak. My single is 47.

I would rather use a canoe for more than 1 person. You just have more room and the secondary stability is/can be MUCH more than a yak.

I have a 169 Old Town canoe with the nice molded seats with backrests. Its much more comfy and I can cary about 300 pounds of payload (not counting the weight of the 2nd paddler).

Mine isnt Royalex...so its quite heavy at around 75 pounds. But I can stand up and fish out of it as long as the person in front stays seated and in the center line.

I have a Dirgo 106 Old Town kayak, Anglers Ed. I absolutely love it! Its much more manueverable(sp?)...but I wouldnt think a tandem kayak would be any better than the canoe unless you have 2 VERY experienced paddlers.

Just my .02's

Gary,

I have a Pungo 140 and it's a single seater with a huge cabin (when removing the dashboard)! Karen's nephew comes along with me, and he is comfortable Smile

For a good price, visit Alden of Sunapee, you can purchased a blemished model for about 40% off the normal list price.

Good luck!
Pete
