Earth Adventures Unlimited is now under old management. The original owner sold the store about ten years ago. Last year he bought the store back. The product selection and pricing is now more to my liking.
Friday afternoon I went up to Fluid Fun in Bristol. They have a good selection of canoes and kayaks. Since they are located on the St. Joseph (of Lake Michigan) river, I was able to try several boats. Paddling the boats really helped me narrow down what I am looking for.
