Well, was looking for a boat, but started REALLY thinking long and hard about what I would use it for, expenses, etc. Since I really want to be 'on' the water in the back bays and channels, I really only feel that I need a kayak. I never thought about one before today. So, what do you guys like in your kayaks? What features do you like? What features don't you like? Which features can you absolutely not live without?
Any brands favored over another? Any other recommendations?
I do know that I would like to have the option for trolling. I have seen kayaks before, most of which have a foot paddle, like pedalling a bike, just for steering in tight spots and 'trolling'.
Need serious advice guys. Time to pick your brains!
