Opinions please-What do you consider the best 2 or 3 boats for marathon paddling. This is directed to single blade paddling only so no surf skis or kayaks. Considerations would be supply storage, resupply every 30-50 miles, stability, speed or even an imagined hybrid i.e. a J boat series with more volume in front. So if you picked an outrigger it would (I assume) get a negative rate for supply storage but plus on stability and speed.
Thanks

Spencer Xstream or X Pro comes to mind 1st. I cannot think of a better mount!

My vote is an Advantage, Voyager, Blackwater, Magic, stable enough, decent volume, barely in the Advantage, and plenty fast for a 340. If you cheat and add rudder much faster 😀
