That's what i'm primarily concerned about given my height...will there really be that much of a noticeabl...

Boat Width/Stability vs Height

Looking at buying a first boat at some point in the future; lots of ww kayaking and tripping experience but minimal OC1. Wondering about good first boats - would likely buy used, so options may be limited. More than anything, i've been looking at boat width. I'm fairly short (~5'4", short torso) and...
