    Kayaker seeking boat suggestions with new hip
    happypaddler posted:
    I had hip replacement surgery late
    Jan. and recently returned from
    from inpatient rehab- longer than
    usual i was sick for a spell.

    Previous to this surgery I was an
    active kayaker with a 14 necky manitou which I know is not an option
    currently but wonder what other paddlers have found works for them?
    I have written various outfitters here
    in the Waterbury area of Ct. but just
    came upon this site and thought
    WOW someone here is maybe a
    paddler. Im 73 otherwise active. Thanks Sandy
