I have had many boats in my day, but I am down to two. My fist good kayak is a Tsunami 15.5 UltrLight. I say, "is," because it still is my number one boat for camping. It holds a week of gear without complaint. I hesitate to admit this, but the Tsunami flew off my car at 100kph, and it suffered only minor injuries. The rudder and port were only scratched!!!!! I just returned from an Adirondack trip, and had a great time. By the way, I'm 65 years old. I'll drive this boat forever.
