Re: North Shore Atlantic rm vs Valley Etain 17.7 rm

Both are seakayaks build to take gear and paddled in rough water if needed. the Atlantic is a more condifence giving boat. more stalbe less fast. if the shit hits the fen i rahter have an atlantic then the etain. but if it ain't. the etain is faster and more elegant.
