I may be a little different. My offshore paddling ends around 10 or 12 miles one way. It becomes too hard to paddle out there and have any time left to fish when you figure in the time it takes to paddle back.

To each his own I have been going offshore for 5 years and I prefer the stability storage and the ability to stow everything securely on the PA 14. I also like to be able to stand when I pee!

that stealth in the pic has an 8ft long box inside the hull good to store lots of fish and rods. Standing when you pee,,, that aint gonna happen in that. Not even kneeling. Its bottle all the way. Seated its super stable and is for the most part not affected by waves. that stealth can handle water a p.a. would never be able to go out in, it is the Ferrari of kayaks i do also like the p.a. but they are definitely made for different things.

Default Mothership for inshore kayak fishing

Families with young kids or older retired people could live in comfort and air conditioning on the Mothership, while being just a short paddle away (100 yards?) from fishing mangrove islands, inshore structure, etc. Also, in a tourist area like ours, living on the Mothership cuts down on hotel and restaurant bills, rental cars, etc.
