I have two sit on top sea kayaks that are awesome on lakes and the ocean. Although they probably would not work on any Class rapids they are self bailing and have storage in front and rear if you want to do any over-nighters. I use mine on local lakes and abalone diving in the ocean.

We have two pygmy kayaks that my dad and I built. One is an Arctic tern, and I'm not sure what the other one is

get a wilderness systems rascal, easiest boat to learn on. Stable, you can fish, sleep, whitewater, whatever. I've had mine going in as little as 3" of moving water with a little creative body lean, and i'm 6' and 195lbs.

does ok in a wide variety of situations. I've had mine in the pacific on a choppy day w/ 10' swells, in lakes in central texas, on flats stalking redfish in the gulf of mexico, and on some mild whitewater in central texas, colorado, and california on class II's, (Lower Cache La Poudre in Colorado, Sespe in California, Guadalupe, and numerous TX rivers)

for class 3's or higher, get a decent whitewater boat, and a serious helmet. I'm not saying you *couldnt* do it in a larger boat like the rascal, but those smaller ones are much more manueverable but they will tip extremely easy. Longer boats tend to jam their nose under hidden rocks and flip you if you're in something too hairy.

the rascal is about, oh 8' long, with some storage under the back and a decent sized cockpit w/ adjustable footpegs.

cr@p. just noticed that wilderness ssytems no longer makes the rascal. closest thing to it is the small Pungo, and that thing's too damn big.

This is mine!



It's made by Dagger, but I forget what model it is and it's a few years old.

It's similar to this one

I have the same thing. It works great for what I do, which is mainly paddling around in the Gulf surf and dropping off shark lines.

Just last year I upgraded to a Necky "Zoar Sport"......fun Kayak for Small Lakes and Rivers/Streams.

Hauled it around with my other toys.....

Vw's



Now that I got a 2001 Cherokee, getting it set up to haul it around......

Jeep

Going out Kayaking it a nice way to just get out and Relax for a few hours on the water !!

A good site with Forums for Kayaking is :

SlinkyTJ, have you ever hauled your kayak with your Jeep. I was thinking about getting a Garvin rack and attaching the kayak to it.
