I'm thinking about buying a Necky Chatham 16 and I have a couple of questions. First of all, I am 6 feet, 175 lbs. Is that okay for this kayak?
Secondly, if I straddle the kayak and drop my butt into the seat, is the cockpit big enough for me to get my legs in afterwards. A friend said I would have to sit on the deck behind the cockpit and use a paddle brace to stabilize the kayak while I get my legs in first and then drop my butt into the seat. Is this correct?
