I’m looking at buying an inexpensive sit on top tandem kayak.
I’ve been around boats a bit — crewed on tall ships and motor vessels, and have done a bit of whitewater rafting and am swiftwater rescue certified at the tech level.
Given all that, if it’s a very basic sit on top (and I have zero experience with them), what’s the learning curve? Is it pretty safe for my (life vest wearing) 6 year old on ponds and lakes? How do they respond to currents? Is it a craft I could — after getting used to it — take out in reasonably calm ocean water? On rivers?
If my dad visits and wants to use it for trout fishing on the lake, will it work for him?
