It's lightness makes it a tad unstable for getting into and out of
because it moves around so much. It also makes it a little different to
row - it glides through the water very easily, but has no momentum, so it
speeds up and slows down with every stroke.
"Noise level"? There isn't any. I power it with a Minn Kota 30-lb
electric motor, and I can sneak up on fish with it. 2-3 knots all
afternoon on a tiny auto battery.
The 8 *IS* a bit small. Now that the 10 is out, I'd get that instead.
Also, Walker Bay is looking at adding a tube around the hull to make it
into sort of a rigid inflatable - looks VERY interesting. And a beautiful
solid wood floor as well...
I wouldn't get the sail package - looking at where the daggerboard is,
I'd say it doesn't sail that well. Just use oars or an electric motor.
