Hi Larry. I took out a regular kayak today and found it almost impossible to turn because I'm so used to the small turning radius and quick responsiveness of the Outback. You may call it wandering but it is real handy when it comes to turning.
...but I'm having second thoughts about how friendly that might seem when it's 50 degrees, say in April or September. Will I need to wear waterproof boots?
That is a good question. In 50 degree weather, when pedaling, I find it necessary be barefooted and in shorts so as not to overheat. In real cold weather, I wear calf high Chota boots that are as comfortable as socks and waterproof. Plus, wear clothing that wicks away moisture. No need to stop kayaking due to a little cold weather. That little bit of water in the Outback doesn't get my feet wet.
