fastest kayak?

Posted by steve on Oct 27, 2006

I've paddled a Ches 16, Pax 20, a strip kayak and commercial surf ski over a distance of 4.5 km out to an island in my local lake . I've done so several times with each craft over a couple of years. They all seem about the same doing the trip in about 25 to 30 mins. Would every boat I try do the same do you think or is there a fast boat I have missed? I'm surprised the Pax 20 isn't distinguishing itself as I built it very carefully finishing it with much greater care than the Ches 16 which was the first boat I built.
