Good question.

I think my WS Manteo is around 50#, the CLC yaks are supposed to weigh around 35# when you're done.

If you're gonna carry it, you have to carry all your other stuff too. That + not worrying about beaching or surfing over rocks makes my choice of a plastice yak work for me.

I don't think windage is an issue if you plan on fishing form the yak - just use a small dirft sock.

The final drag of the year for me (and the fear of receiving CPR from Nick) , across Bewster flats has motivated me to work on my physical fitness.

Look for a stronger, faster, leaner Roop this spring.
