: I have a Swift, Caspian Sea, 15'4" which is extremely stable
: and maneuverable. I am looking for a little more length / speed
: so I can increase my range. I'm a typical out and back paddler
: who enjoys working around the CT coastline, vacationing in Maine
: on Casco Bay, and the occasional camping on coastal islands.
: If there is a better suited used boat available, please let me
I’d rather paddle your boat than a Sirius any day. The Sirius probably has a shorter waterline than your current boat and is no faster. Just come along on a paddle, most folks will be happy to let you try their boats out at lunch. There are some generalizations that can made about certain kayaks and we can point out some attributes that might not be readily apparent to a less experienced paddler, but choosing a boat is very subjective and you really need find the one that feels right to you.
