My wife and I bought this...

My wife and I bought this kayak at the beginning of summer and it has been excellent. We are older and needed something lightweight and storable during the winter months and this turned out to be perfect. It takes only a couple of minutes to get it ready and to clean it. We use in Puget Sound for kayaking and for crabbing. It is big enough to carry a crab pot and other gear. We also have three grandsons that love taking it out when they visit.
