Spinal Tap said:While I can understand your desire for speed, you will also have to consider capacity and deck layout for all your gear. The Scupper pro has a big hatch up front for pretty much everything including your gun. More important that what it can carry inside is the fact that you'll have to put some gear on when you finally reach your dive site. Many divers will only wear the wetsuit bottom when paddling out because the wetsuit top will be too much of a constraint to paddling. You won't have your weightbelt on either (probably about 9kg based on your weight). Putting on a wetsuit top on a very narrow kayak possibly in seas with a little swell could be disastrous.

(and also anyone else)
Have you tried a Cobra Tourer? If so, how do you like it, what is a good price on a used one with rudder in good condition? Comes with rudder, seat, two large hatches, a tank well, a huge (8 inch) nut hatch, comes with a Cobra power flex paddle, a paddle leash, a scottys rod holder for trolling and a PVC rod storage system
I don't know how many of these things are standard so I wouldn't know what ballpark figure is...
