I have had almost all of the Kleppers sincethe50;s. I started with a t-9, then a t-8, then an aerius 2, and aerius1. about twelve more since then and throw in quite a few folbots. The aerius 2 is my favorite since it can cqrry a large payload. I have been sailing them since 1958. I also took my t-9 to Trinidad while in the Navy in 1962. I fished both the Carribean and the Atlantic while I was there. I started my kayak fishing in Wisc. in 1955, so don;t even go there with " it;s a new sport".This is my 62nd year of doing that. My largest fish anywhere was in Trinidad when I was towed around the bay by a 100 pd Tarpon. No. it wouldn;t .come in the boat our smaller 2000 is a fun boat for the lakes and rivers of Ill, and Wisc.I would like to chat with the man in the previous post that also paddled in Trinidad.. I have thousand s of s tories about all my various kayaks and places I;ve been. Don sutton in Downers Grove Il
I have been going on 4 day trips with it down the Wisconsin and Mississippi rivers for 4 yrs now and may upgrade to the Quatro just based on the tracking and lack of rudder mount which all our old boats have. Don't think this boat was designed with that in mind, I get it, but that's one of the reasons I'm looking to upgrade. A rudder on a river is like having someone steer for you. Effortless paddling.
