I am looking to get an OC-1 but am having a bit of trouble trying to narrow down the choices. I'm located in the States on the east coat, am 5'11", 32" inseam, roughly 210 lbs., and am looking to paddle the boat primarily on flat watter but with a focus of getting to the point of doing some ocean races. I have seen the threads that suggest that I do some research, look at the OC1 comparison chart and demo the boats first.
I've done some research, started to talk with some folks and looking to demo a Hurricane in the next week or so. There's quite a few boats on the OC1 comparison chart that seem to fall witihn my range, but the sizing (specifically the recommended weight range) seems to be a bit vague especially when you visit some of the manufacturers sites. As such, I am not sure what boats to target.
Any thoughts or recommendations would be appreciated, and thanks in advance.
