The kingfisher has less accessible storage than the prowler. You can also get a rudder for the prowler. The prowler has been listed a few times so may shift on the price. Both are 13 foot / 4.1m which is a good size

depends which way the wind is blowing. Try for gentle offshore for starters, avoid southerlies at the top end of the bay as it can get lumpy. Next few days the forecast is looking good.
