Perhaps, but the discussion is about THIS tandem, eh!
I read the review...
Show me a couple that will"...paddle well together..." in this yak and I'll show you a couple of newbies who just don't know what they don't know yet. They won't even know that a divorce is looming
This is an entry level yak, that can be bought for $300-$350 dollars in the used market.
No storage to speak of, and you would have a hard time getting
a sandwich out of that hatch without crushing it.
Did we mention the size and weight?
Dimensions: 12' 1" L x 33.5" W
Weight: 72 lbs.
The Double Play is shown below, with the hatch, the Tango has a flat rectangular recessed area where the hatch is on the Double Play.
As the review mentions, you will be an inch deep in water all around your butt and your paddling mate's butt, unless you plug the scupper holes.
Then you will ship a wave and really get deep in water.
I would much rather have something like the following. I might see tandem paddling in something like this...
Rigged for Fishing...
