New to Board
I'm moving down to Brickell in a few months and plan to buy a kayak. Just wanted some of your guys' input as to which model. I'd like to use the kayak for both inshore and offshore fishing. For offshore, I think it would be advantageous to have a secondary mode of transport and am therefore looking at the Hobie Mirage kayaks, specifically the PA 12/14 and Outback. I was pretty much sold on a PA, but on Hobie's forum there is a topic comparing the stability of the Outback and PA. That topic makes it sound like the Outback is more stable in windy, rougher water while the PA is better to for stand, sight fishing, etc on flat water.
In addition, the Outback will be easier to transport and is also easier for surf entry/exit.
Does anybody have any insight into the stability issue? Anybody have experience in these two boats offshore?
Thanks for the help
