In the market. Didn't know there were sooo many choices out there to make.

We first wanted a tandem, assuming either my niece or friends or what ever. Found out that if you get a 2 man, you need 2 men. Solo operation of a tandem is quite difficult.

Sit in vs sit on. Although the first salesman we talked to was pretty comfortable with sit in, the rest we met thru the day seemed to push the Sit On versions. I agreed with them. I don't think I would want to be paddling from with in a bath tub.

Longer vs Shorter. From what I gather the longer ones can travel faster and tend to track straighter, while the shorter ones can turn on a dime and maneuver anywhere.

So OT... anything I missed or need to know before cashing in my Christmas present?

For the record, I'm leaning towards:

Ocean Kayak, The Frenzy.
