You've done a nice job providing a factual and unbiased presentation of the benefits and tradeoffs.

Hats off. After reading a very similar article my 2 friends got Sit-ins, I got a SOT. Here's observations after 5 years:

1)open saltwater lends well to longer, stable SOT pedal drives if fishing is your primary interest

2)for streams, rivers, estuaries or beaches where you stop alot to fish-especially where the banks may be steep/deep or difficult to access easily, SOTs provide ease of exit/entry,especiall y in waders.

3) Sit Ins are often "cleaner" on deck with less to tangle up on, but you do sit lower which makes it more difficult to cast for a fly fisherman.

4) Sit Ins appear to be alittle faster than SOTs of the same lenght (hull designs).

5) For the "average" person who kayaks 10-20 days per year, when (not if) you dump, many find a SOT easier to walrus wallow back on to than righting a sit-in, especially in choppy or windy weather and certainly in a relative quick river or rip current.

6) If you "ferry" kids, beach stuff, coolers,etc, and then after you've performed your vacation duties you get to go fishing for a few hours, SOTs are great.

7) it all comes down to needs and tradeoffs - 650hp 2 seater or suburban, something in between...whatever floats YOUR boat...enjoy

#3 Doug 2010-02-24 22:32 Thanks for a great article to help me select my first kayak..

I'm looking for a kayak to fish small lakes in MN, maybe with some portaging involved so weight will be important to me.

I also have a small car so I need to consider the overall length also. Can't wait for spring!
