Hobie's i9S was specifically designed for people shy on spare acreage but who dream of spending their time kayaking, fishing or sailing (via the optional Sail kit). The compact i9S offers on-the-water performance that rivals rigid boats, and its rugged, PVC-vinyl construction and reinforced underside eliminate fears of rocky beaches. Now comes standard with the MirageDrive 180 with new Kick-Up Fin Technology.

At about a year old an inner seam let go and my boat stopped holding air in the center compartment. Hobie replaced it. Now three years later several seams let go today and most of the glued on clips fell off. I am heartbroken because I did enjoy it so much, but for 2400 dollars, the glue should hold. Do not purchase an inflatable.
