I would like to thank all the IKers that helped my decision making process on switching from hard-shells, along with deciding on what IK I wanted. I tired a half dozen different IKs. I just had a great 3 night 4 day trip on the Rogue River, had rain, wind and fire! It was a 10 bear trip with 2 days of smoke free sunshine; it gave me a good chance to work the boat. A kayaker flipped in front of me going down Coffee Pot Rapid; had to make a fast snappy eddy-out half way down in a tight boiling eddy to avoid him, it was not a problem. This IK handles very well, surfing, side-surfs and 360s are easy, but clearly not a hard-shell!  I finally got an action boating picture of the Sotar IK I had custom built. I purposely got the bow up, not good technique, but makes for a fun photo.  If anyone is considering buying an IK and has not found what you like, you are welcome to try this IK, it is one of a kind. This offer is my way of giving back to the IK community for all the help they offered me. Sotar may have a fall sale soon. PM me for questions.
Thanks again from the old guy, ChrisW 
Sorry can not figure out how to post pictures, maybe later.
For pic's click gallery, I think???
