im looking to get into kayaking, i also dont have a lot of cash. im trying to find out if a 300 pound weight capacity kayak will work for me. i weigh 275. i have asked a few places that sell kayaks and cant get a straight answer, probaly because they are just worried about making a sale.
the weight capacity is my concern because a 300 pound capacity kayak is alot cheaper then say a 400 pound or higher. you can find 300 pound kayaks for $300 or cheaper, any higher capacity is around $500 or more.
i dont plan on carrying any heavy gear, and i wont be on the water by myself so if i need to i can put gear in one of my friends kayaks. also i wont be doing any crazy rapids just ponds/lakes and slow rivers.
