Yeah.....buying gently used yaks is the way to go. I had to go thru a few before I found the right one for me. Hope you & the family have a blast. jim

Jeff, my first yak was a Caper. While it is extremely stable it is a nightmare to attempt to  paddle it straight. It wants to wander no matter how good your paddle stroke is. I just met a female kayak angler that paddles a Venus and she told me that the Venus was the same way. Another choice is the Cobra Navigator. I had one and while longer than the Caper weighed exactly the same and was way better to paddle. I've got a buddy with a T-13 that likes his a lot.  I don't know anything about the T-11 which is another choice but I would definitely try to have your wife test paddle a few yaks before you settle on a Caper. jim

Topher, when you say 'full size' flares are you talking about the standard ones used by the CHP and broken down motorists?
On another safety note I was at REI over the weekend eyeing a 2ml wetsuit jacket. Made for SUP boarders I think.
$80 so I had to hold off until work picks up and the cash begins to flow again. Looked like it would work perfect with my farmer john on the cold days and for the 'big swim in'.  ;D

I mostly fish south of what I consider the actual Lost Coast which to me is Usal Beach northward.
But hey it's not a bad idea to jump onboard a forum at the beginning.....And I do love it when I can make it up there!
Thanks for the welcome guys and I'm looking forward to your salmon reports ASAP.  :)
