Check out Reef Kayaks, supposedly designed with the larger paddler in mind.

Gut em out there, unless it is the largest one on a club trip we record weights. Scaling is easier with a battery drill and kitchen mixer attachment. Outside of course! Too messy out on the water when you forget the scaler otherwise.

Re: Roof Rack Set up advice
