    Looking to upgrade. I have the sun dolphin 10 foot sit on top deal right now and its light weight and I can carry it around my self which is important because most of my trips are solo. Just wondering if a 12 foot is gonna be too much to carry around for one person or if the stability is gonna be worth the hassle. I like to fly fish so I’m trying to have standing be an option aswell.

    What type of water do you kayak in most frequently?

    I’d say just go for the 12ft. I have a 12ft sit on and I don’t have any issues moving it around (granted I do have a pickup), and if you want stability I think the extra size would be worth it.

    Only reason I wouldn’t upgrade to a 12ft is if it’s not in your budget.

    look at the weights of the boat. anything over 70lbs is a bear to move around. I prefer 10fts

    Check out the CK1 Venture. Lots of the benefits of 10 and 12 foot boats and has a 400 pound weight capacity despite the boat only weighing 60 pounds.

    I have a 13ft Prowler… it’s a bit heavy… I carry it on my head to get it around (probably should use the wheels more 🤪) but I really like how fast it is, especially in wind or chop. I may lose some maneuverability but on the open ocean it really flies. But with ponds and small lakes, the 10ft may be better for turning.
