What don't you like about the Prowler CK?

I went fishing with Choup this weekend and we moved around a lot cartopping several times on Saturday. I found the smaller boats much easier to just "move and scoot". The P15 isn't bad at all. It's more my setup than anything. I drive an expedition and I'm only 5'7. It's just hard for me to load a 16 foot yak fast, especially solo. Right now I need to carry a small ladder in my car and it's a chore to load everything.
I really need a trailer, but haven't found anything yet suitable. If I had a trailer I wouldn't be selling it. I just want to maximize my time on the water. If I don't get any takers I'll just eventually pick up a trailer and it'll be moot. Love the boat though, just frustrated with the logistics of getting out to the water.

Did you notice how I "move and scoot" in my Armada? Does the front passenger seat in your Explorer fold down? Check Kurt's pictures from the Fourchon boat launch and you'll see it sticking out of the back.
When I bought the Armada I initially wanted a Tahoe. When I realized I could slide my kayak through the rear window and tie off the bow on the front seat hand rail, the decision was made. I've driven 200+ miles with it like that.
I only car top if I need the internal seating or if I'm carrying two boats. I guess what I'm trying to say is it sounds like a vehicle issue , and not a boat issue. There's not that much weight difference between Choup's P-13 and your boat, is there?
In the meantime, I'll see if my brother in Mandeville wants a great deal on a fully rigged P15. http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Unfortunately there's no way the wife would fly for that. I'd have dirt everywhere and the smell of salt water in the car would have my rear end in a slinger. No doubt it's a great idea.
As for the difference in boats, it's not so much the weight as it is just being bigger for me and more awkward. I'm not really dying to sell it, but figured if I could make 90% of the money back for an added 10% convenience factor...why not hee hee
Another secret hidden agenda I have is I've always wanted to do an "in hull ice chest" using the front hatch. I can't really effectively reach my front hatch on a P15 but I can on a small boat.
I'm going to be yak fishing for a long time so I'm looking for the perfect setup that fits my style. Just little things...
Sounds good about your Brother.

Ahhh, the 'yak buying obsession. There is no perfect boat, just different kayaks for different situations.
I checked with my brother and he said somthing about his sailboat and slip rentals and how much he loves it all http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif. Unfortunately, I told him earlier that I might buy a third kayak if I sold my canoe, so he can sit back and wait for me to buy his boat for him.
I called him a weenie after that http://kfs.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif.....

You've got me curious as to what you have your eye on now CK.
If you had a pick-up truck with a custom crafted hitch hand like mine your worries would be over.
If you'd like, I can go over to the Buy/Sell Forum and attest to the fact that your yak has never had fish slime on it.
