Just wondering if anyone here has any experience with sea kayaks. In particular expedition kayaks.
I have been thinking about kayaking from fraser island to the cape for some time and starting to look a bit deeper and see what sort of logistics are required.
One of the main things I am struggling to find info on is what sort of boat materials are best suited for my adventure. I note that most expedition kayaks are some form of composite material but wonder whether for my conditions (bashing into rocks and coral!) the roto-moulded polyethylene mighten be a bad option. The plastics seem to have come along way in there durability and I need something that could take a good whack or three. The boat would be fully laden (self sufficient) and I am a big nugget at 6"4 and 100kgs. I have been looking at the Valley Nordkapp.
I shall be visiting the boat store when I head down south in a few weeks possibly and would like to be a some what knowledgeable when I arrive.
