Yet another yaker here, and proud of it
As has been said, there are tossers on both sides of the picture, but I try to stick to locations away from all the hectic action of powerboats, especially during events held on the Basin.
I have 3 yaks and all have their purpose from skinny water Basing through to outside in the Big Blue.
They are great for fishing waters that the boats just can't get to and this leads to some pretty Specky catch and releases.
My main yak is a Hobie PA14 and stand up sight fishing is a breeze in it, no stability hassles what so ever.
Just as a side note: If you would like to test ride a Hobie and live in the Nowra region, head down to the display at Grey's Boat ramp from 10am in the morning.
You will have to contact Peddle Paddle Sail Sth Nowra to book a vessel for trial though
