I recently purchased a yak from Penguin (which btw pete the yak is great!) After our North Country excursion, my wife now wants her own kayak. She was using a small perception, but had some trouble getting in and out of the cockpit, but not as dramatically as VT loon's wife.
My concern about SOT's is that they don't provide any cover allowing the user to get wet. Now on a warm summer day that is not a problem, but on cooler days it can be a serious problem, especially for my wife. Soooo my question is, which yak w/cockpit is easiest getting in and out of or are they all the same and it is simply a matter of technique?
