Inflatable Kayaks, any good?

Recommended Posts

Depends on what you are used to. There are some that are almost the equivalent of hard shell kayak, but they are pricey. If it's a toy, then there are cheaper options. If you are used to a proper sea kayak, or DRR boat, you'll be disappointed! But, they can be better than a sit-on-top, which IMO is not a kayak!

I use a Sevylor 1000, which is an older model now.

Takes 2 people sober or 4 to 5 when shitfaced, paddles like a rigid, 3 separate air chambers, floor is inflatable and can be used as a paddle board, tuff, complies with YNZ Regs requiring 'a dingy', when used as a 'race requirement dingy' I can deploy it faster than a liferaft......and be onto my 2nd beer before those with dingys tied on deck get even close to deployment ;)
