''FAP-16 by Thomas Yost: Trial Run 06APR2002''
FAP-16 is quite stable and tracks well. Following
and cross winds have little effect and it turns quickly.
I'm very pleased with it's overall
performance, especially considering it's a folder. That
was my goal all along. I wanted light weight, quick build,
and above all good performance. It performs much like my
Dyson 5.28 although I think FAP-16 is a bit more stable
with the Dyson getting the nod in speed. This is a
good performing kayak that just happens to fold.
