I have a 9 year old daughter that wants to go kayaking. Would this boat be suitable for a novice kayaker such as myself to start out with and be safe?
yes, this boat is great for new kayakers.i take it out on the ocean in Okinawa all the time with my wife and it is extremely stable, i was very surprised when i first took it out to how stable it was and how well it tracked. one thing to note is its size , if you have a tall vehicle getting this beast on top may require two of you its not light so it can be a bear to carry and maneuver around out side of the water.
also on the the plus side due to the drain holes and the fact that it has a sealed bulkhead you cannot sink it. no matter how many waves crash over the bow or if you manage to roll it the boat will not flood.
