The other thing about wide short kayaks and speed, they are slower. Long and skinny is fast.

They look brilliant brother.
When very cold, upper can be held easier..
Up wind less windage.
Can be powered like a canoe oar .... lots thrown into her.
Not to (too) high air when a rudder.
Down side is skill reliance. Skill fun to learn though and when needed be nice being comfortable with that.
I think I'm in love my brother.

short piece of wood easier to find than a long piece of wood.
I don't read wood well,
