ocean kayak's drifter

2 posts in this topic

Anyone have any experience with this yak? How does it compare to cobra's fnd? Physically the fnd is 2" wider and has a 100lb heavier payload. Pricewise the drifter is about $100.00 cheaper (in the VA beach area). I will be paddling both when the dealer get his next shipment. Any thoughts? I am 6'1" 200 lbs and will be surf launching the OBX beaches for stripers, drum and spanish. Any thoughts?

The Drifter is a lot faster than the FnD and the Drifter also comes with a hatch. The FnD you'll have to buy a hatch and have it installed. The Drifter can be a wet ride but by using scupper plugs the ride is very dry. Try out both kayaks and see for yourself which 1 you'll be happy with.
