    • Why do you want this kayak?
      • For the small paddler, the Pilgrim is a play, day trip and weekend expedition boat. With still very few sea kayak models of this size available on the market it is sought after by the smaller paddlers. As with the Echo and most other boats in the range its knee bumps help it to fit a range of leg lengths and give a wider leg position, better suited for rough water paddling. Its shorter length means it isn’t the fastest boat, and can’t carry the weight required for a longer expedition. However its ease of manoeuvrability means boat handling in the rough is its forte.

      • The Pilgrim Expedition is designed for the small paddler who wants a fast day trip or expedition boat. The longer length of this kayak gives it more displacement meaning it can carry the extra weight required for an expedition. It also gives it speed, another useful characteristic for expeds and for those paddlers looking to keep up a higher pace. This length inevitably makes handling more difficult and it isn’t quite as wind neutral as most of the rest of the range, being slightly harder to turn into the wind, but weather cocking less. This can easily be corrected by moving the seat forward slightly, as long as your legs aren’t too long to accommodate this. - Link

    A lot of paddlers tend to buy expedition type kayaks when in reality they will only use them for this purpose a couple of times a year and the vast majority of their paddling trips are day or weekend trips where a better fitting and therefore sharper handling kayak would make their time on the water more enjoyable!
