Dean 16 Recreational Kayak
I myself have paddled many km in a Dean16 along the areas of the North West coast of Tasmania as well as through Maquarie Heads and parts of the inner Harbor, and relaxed paddling in various west coast and northern Tasmanian rivers. I have been known to stand up in the cockpit and wave to friends on the shore and to sail and fish in a Dean 16
The Dean has a flat 2″ keel strip extending towards to the stern which as its paddled, causes the stern of the kayak to rise or lift resulting in a lesser in water area which therefore increases its speed, making it such a delight to paddle.
It has a nice flow on if you stop paddling anf tracks very well.
