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
