Hey. First, I just want to say that I might take up BOTH of these hobbies but first............just a word about sea kayaking:
How fast (in kilometers an hour preferably) how fast can a guy who is reasonably fit, how fast can he sea kayak, you know, if he's taking it "casually"?
And if there's someone out there who has done both of these hobbies.........what's your take on the pro's and con's of both these hobbies? I don't want to try both all at once because, first of all, I need to buy a sailboat if I'm going to do both. Is there a sailor out there who would advise me to join a sailing club, climb aboard and see if the thing is right for me? Do some of you prefer sea kayaking simply because with a sea kayak, perhaps you can get into small places and little channels where a sailboat can't go?
I also understand that, if it'd be a sailboat, you would have to moor it in one spot and then ALWAYS have to go from that spot to other marine parks? Is sailboating, understanding that you have one, is it costly to maintain? I wouldn't know how to get from a to b when it comes to what your suppose to do once you have the sailboat, understanding that eventually once you sail up and down a few times a year, what your suppose to do once it's yours. Besides the fun part and all that........
I'm just afraid that a sea kayak can't go very fast. I want to go to far off places and just camp from one marine park to the other.......(if that's something that I'd be actually doing once let's say, I had, a sea kayak) I'm just thinking that with a sailboat, you can go farther because you won't exhaust yourself paddling alot, depending where you want to go...........
So can someone give me some heads up? Any relevant replies welcome. I really appreciate it. As I said before, I've haven't done either of these things...........as you can see, I'm really caught up with it
Ok thanks for any replies.
