- Q & A
Light and fast for a sit on top.
I have a Walden passage 15 foot kayak which is surprisingly fast. It is a very nice boat but it has a small cockpit. I'm in my 70's and am too stiff to get into it especially in light surf. I have an Ocean Kayak Caper 11 foot which I fish out of. It is a good boat. It is a sit on top and great for launching in light surf, but it is pretty slow. I wanted more length for more speed. The skimmer 140, while not as fast as the Passage, is noticeably faster than the Caper. Just paddling is definitely more enjoyable than the caper. It is also drier than the caper. As with all sit on tops, you do sit pretty high and catch the wind. It is drier than the caper. I have only used it in a lake since I live in Colorado. Winds have been over 20mph but there wasn't a lot of wave generation due to the small body of water compared to and ocean. The weight makes it easy to put on top of the truck. I would recommend the red or mango, since I was knocked over in the yellow caper 1.5 miles of shore in the Sea of Cortez in 4 to 5 foot whitecaps and some one saw me from shore and came out in a pongo and picked me up.
