My wife and I have been paddling for four years and owned Delta 17s for a year. We drive down to Florida with the boats and earlier this year paddled Key Largo to Key West.

We have an interest in trying out more exotic places to paddle and so a folding kayak seems the way to go (plus they look like a great building project). I'm looking at making a Yost Sea Tour 17 which is fairly similar to what we're used to with the Deltas. If anyone has made this boat and has advice or interesting mods I should consider for this design of boat, please let me know or the relevant links within the forum.
At the moment I'm considering incorporating a simple way of extending the boat (which some commercial folding boats have done) which seems to have several advantages, and also dropping the bow and stern for a longer water line aka Epic 18X style.

Thanks for reading, Jez
