She's quick. At normal cruising speeds, a kayak with low wetted surface possesses a speed advantage over larger hulls. In the Osprey-13' you will be cutting capers around your friends in their big kayaks--greater friction slows them down relative to the 13'. The Osprey-13 is a great boat for pre-teens and younger children. For many children building a Osprey-13 and letting them grow into it is a good choice. The Osprey-13' holds 60 pounds of gear, plus the paddler. Weekend touring is a snap. If you pack as efficiently as a backpacker, you can go out for a week.
