I had an old, small drift chute/windsock/drift anchor. I added that to the anchor trolleys that I put on. It keeps the boat where I want it, without having to anchor. The wind likes to blow inflatables around, but there are ways around some of those issues. Without the built-in skeg, this thing woul...

Good on you, Rich. I had to give up kayaking at age 80, so I will enjoy sharing your experiences with you vicariously.

Rich, I was impressed how well it supported me, great glide and spin, and easy to position with light paddle. Also had to portage up a 3'-tall chute, and it was easy enough for that. I'm 6'3 and 215, all limbs. Though it's 30" wide, I can still straddle it for fishing comfort. https://i.imgur.c...

It is SO MUCH fun to catch a good fish from a kayak. Almost as much fun as catching them wade fishing. p.s. I wish I could get my big butt into a redfish 10.

looks like a great light boat option.
When Josh and I were out a few weeks ago, I took the 45-lb Redfish 10.
It did that job perfectly.

Some people take inflatables out in coast wind. There, I'd think a skeg is just about required.

Yes, at age 81, I bought my 6th kayak. While I still have a 17 ft tinny here in TN., I decided that there were some small ponds/lakes around that I'd like to fish. For well under $500, all-in, I can deflate; fold, and transport this 12 ft. yak anywhere. I added a far better seat and I still don't ha...

It's another variation of my yellow inflatable, with some nice features I didn't get with mine. (especially the catamaran hull) I get well over 10 mph with an ancient 5hp Yamaha 2 stroker. ...

That’s one of the issues with inflatables, you always have to watch the tubes. On river rafts even while on the water on hot days we had to pour water over the raft to cool it down. Here is what my NRS Pike manual says. As the outside air temperature and altitude change, the air pressure inside your...

It paddles surprisingly well and they have improved the seat. Attached photo is mine on the Colorado River just abo...

There are several different manufactures that make a clip on roof rack so you don't have to drill any holes. Get you an adjustable T-style hitch for the front receiver hitch and that would be plenty...
