    a weekend / play boat for a larger guy,

    i'm 6'1, 230, size 11 feet and have a mobility challanged right knee, so just getting in and out can be a bit of a trial for me in some boats

    i've paddled MEC's rental Delphins and Aries a fair bit an would be happy with either one, also totaly love everything about the Grand Illusion other than the price tag...

    but any other boat that's reasonable similar and inside my budget range + i could try out would be of interest too...

    Romany Surf / RM / Excel would seem to be a good fit on paper, never seen one tho, likewide Boreal Baffin p/t/c3

    best if it's somewhere withon driveing distance of Vancouver / lower mainland tho

    thanks!

    If the Aries doesn't work out there is a Romany Surf, a Sterling's Reflection, and a Tiderace Xcite on the Seattle Craigslist. None are mine and no affiliation with the sellers.

    i tried a P3 and loved it, easy in and out for me too
    but i found a Delphin 155 recently at a price that worked for us, so no longer looking!
