falcon s18 yay or nay : Kayaking

falcon s18 yay or nay : Kayaking


Hello! I have the opportunity to buy a 2008 Eddyline Falcon S18 for $900 dollars. I was looking at a longer style touring boat to take camping/multiday paddles, but this grabbed my attention. I also like to play around in lake chop 2-3ft waves in my Dagger Alchemy. Research says that the Falcon is decently fast, however – it cuts directly into the waves (resulting in pearling) rather than on top of them. Others say that it isn’t all that stable in choppy water. I guess this is more of a “performance boat” rather than a true touring? Maybe a Tempest170 is the best option? I’ve been looking at the Delta16 & Fathom, but they are way outside my budget. I graduated from a Pungo125->Tsunami124-> Alchemy14L -> and I am looking for a “fun touring” that I can also take on long trips and have a little fun in chop.
