: Want to buy an OK Aegean or Cabo but can't find a dealer here in AZ. Can anyone recommend a reputable on-line dealer?
: also, I'm 6' and ~225lbs. I'll be paddling solo (mostly lakes and bays) and tandem with kids (ranging from ~90lbs to ~150lbs). Malibu IIs are too short; we clack paddles. Aegean seems long enough, but I like the length and storage on Cabo *IF* it'll be usable when I'm paddling solo. Thoughts?
I have an aegean kayak and solo it all the time; it is a bit weighty, unloading and loading can be a hassle, but the speed and stability are what I need at the moment. But, if you need storage, get the cabo, and practice first if you plan on carrying children because the cabo is narrower and has a hatch. My aegean only has a drain plug and is super bouyant and I feel it is a better choice for carrying extra people, just be careful when it come to weather conditions. If I were to offer any dealers in your area, try the ones that have paddle classes, because they deal with so many types of paddlers.
