Looks like a nice rig compared to most inflatables I've seen.

Looks interesting. Haven't seen one though. We have an Innova Swing 2 and find it convenient when we don't want a vessel on top of the car.

Nice kayak. Inflatables have come a long way. If you get one of these let us know how you like it.

Not there yet but I like the openness, like a canoe. Generally I don't camp where I'd use one, though, so it isn't at the top of the list, though that could change.

Hadn't been in a kayak for several years but let the g'kids talk grandpa into doing a demo in a home built.
Age has a way of creeping up on you. When I got back to shore I found it impossible to exit and had to roll it over and fall out. Guess that my kayaking days are now only in my memories.

I don't care for sit-on-tops myself. No matter how you slice it you end up with a higher center of mass and more surface area exposed to the wind (= more work and less control).

But it's easier to get out of!

Looks like a Folboat.

Folbots have a skin over a frame, yes? This is a single sheet of plastic that folds up like magic origami.

I communicated with the owner of this online Sea Eagle dealer Sea Eagle Kayaks | Sea Eagle’s Largest Dealer | Inflatable Kayaks and he remarked that his (and his wife's) personal favorite was the PaddleSki; its catamaran style tracked straighter and took less paddling effort than most, plus its width made it more stable. I ended up buying a different brand of kayak, but haven't used it much because (like Jim) I've realized that sitting low and paddling just isn't that much fun any more at my stage of life. I'd now lean toward a Saturn KaBoat with a motor, if I had the extra funds.
