What the advantage/disadvantages of sit on vs sit in?

I like the low center or gravity of the sit in. I also prefer to stay as dry as possible if I'm just cruising around in my every day clothes.

If you're swimming and stuff, you can climb back onto a sit on top from the water. That's pretty difficult to do with a sit inside.

THIS. Sit ons wobble around more. Girls like them as to not have tan lines lol. I prefer the lower center of gravity on my sit in.

I have a cheapo $200 ish 10 footer from Dicks. Its been great. I spent like $25 on amazon and got a paddle clip and rod holder. Got me a fishing kayak for half the price hahaha

I went on a buying spree a few years ago. Bought some sit ins, sit ons, fishing, inflatable, etc. When just the wife and I go out the two we always take are the cheap 10 Sun Dolphin sit in Kayaks we bought at Walmart for under 200 bucks. They track straight, are fast and easy to maneuver and really stable.

I feel funny leaving the more expensive Kayaks at the house and taking the little cheapies, and for a while I would let my wife take the sun dolphin and I would take a sit on fishing kayak. Anymore though, for just tooling around I just can't beat the cheap boats from Walmart.

Only other downside to a sit-in is probably how much of you will stuff in it!!!

I haven't tried sitting in one, so I may have a problem!
